Colorado native Duane Chapman, best known as Dog the Bounty Hunter, was hospitalized over the weekend after suffering a possible heart attack, TMZ reports

According to TMZ, Chapman suffered a 'heart emergency' that could require a surgical procedure.  

"I can confirm Dog is under doctor's care and is resting comfortably," tweeted Richard Moore, a member of Chapman's management team. "Thank you for all your well wishes - keep'em coming."

This has been challenging year for the reality star. His wife, Beth Chapman, died in June after a battle with cancer. 

In August, Chapman's store in Edgewater was broken into.
