Dog The Bounty Hunter reveals store is open and taking orders as coronavirus crisis bites – The Sun

DUANE “Dog” Chapman revealed his merchandise store is accepting online orders amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Dog, 67, promoted his clothing store on Instagram amid financial issues, as COVID-19 has forced the closing of non-essential businesses.

On Friday, Dog re-posted: “The Bounty Store will stay open. We are taking orders and shipping as always.”

Dog captioned the re-post: “Fear not! We are open for business!”

The store is even offering a free item with each order.

The announcement comes after the Dog The Bounty Hunter star posted on Instagram that he is shutting down the store over COVID-19 fears earlier this week.

His message read: “To comply with the order of the Governor of California the Bounty store will be closing for orders today (March 20) at 5pm Eastern time, 2PM Pacific time until Mid April. All orders placed before this time will be filled”

As The Sun has reported, Dog has been dealing with financial issues in recent years.

Hawaiian Airlines World Elite MasterCard sued Beth’s estate for $73,860.55 on January 27, 2020.

MasterCard filed a second claim for $1,078.78 for a different account on February 11, 2020, Hawaiian court papers revealed.

While Dog is not responsible for personally paying off the debt, he is expected to handle claims against his wife’s estate as the representative.

Beth passed away from cancer in June 2019.

As The Sun has also reported, he owes $5,800.48 in back taxes for the 2019 year on the Colorado home he once shared with Beth.

Dog also has a lien on the home in the amount of $5,809.44, which includes interest, the clerk for the Douglas County Treasurer's Office confirmed.

In a recent interview with The New York Times, he admitted he is “broke” and in danger of losing his Colorado home.

Dog is also in a middle of a legal battle over allegedly failing to pay $109,328.69 in house payments.

Duane was sued on December 26, 2018 for failing to make monthly payments on a $2,240,000 home they purchased from Karen and Craig Mills in 2015.

Dog has been encouraging fans to self-isolate in order to stay safe and avoid spreading the deadly virus.

Dog didn’t take his own advice though, as he was spotted at a Colorado coffee shop soon after the post.

His daughter Lyssa has been urging her dad to “stay home.”

She tweeted: "In an unsettle reversal of my teenage years, I am now yelling at my parents for going out.

“Stay home dad!”
