  • I want to make my sons wishes come true. They just want to say hi to Dog. They are 5 and 4 and have some health issues. my 4 yr old is possibly facing brain surgery please help me get in touch with Dog and his family they make my sons nights. They said the Chapmans make them feel safe.

  • I’m currently in high school in the small town of Glendora, CA. There are many kids at my school hooked on dope. It may just be a TV show, but seeing Dog and how happy he is, and how much love he has for the fugitives he captures gives me the strength to SAY NO! Dog, you are one of the largest inpirations in my life, and it’s a long-term dream to be able to speak with you. I’ve got mad respect for you! If you’d like to speak with me my # is (626)858-8481. I would love just to say and talk for a few minutes. You’re my dog!!!!!!

    Wait she got fired for taking bribes and offer them, all corrupt.. I want an answer to my question please?????? How does she get away with doing that willful wanton and malicious and outright criminal behavior on national television?????

  • I saw your “Mercy Tour” on TV last night What an inspiration it was to see the difference you’ve made in people’s lives. I thank God that you are aware of the power you have on your show to influence people’s lives, and that you feel a responsibility to influence them for good and worthwhile things. Also to let others know that it’s never too late to turn your life around. I’m impressed at how you always pray and ask God to direct you and to bless the people you come in contact with and that you aren’t judgmental.
    I’m writing to you about my son Justin. I pray you can and will try to help him. I’ve been praying that God would put someone in his life that he would trust enough to listen to them. While I was watching the tour last night I felt that if he could meet you that maybe you would help him to turn his life around. He is 26 years old and is ABSOLUTELY aimless and has given up on life already. He thinks his current situation (living on the street)is his lot in life and has no motivation to do anything. He has been on the streets or in shelters for over four years off and on. He has put up such a wall against being hurt that he lets no one in. He was a wrestler in high school and was ranked #1 in Orange County, CA. He went to state but decided to party with his friend the night before the meet and lost the match. He was a very good athelete. He played baseball since he was four years old and was good at that. He was a pitcher and had an extremely fast pitch. However, he got messed up with drugs in his senior year and dropped out of school with only 6 weeks left. He broke up with his long-time girlfriend and has never gotten over that. He was arrested for a DUI and ended up going to jail because he wouldn’t take care of it. He has been on a downward spiral ever since and has no hope. In 2005 we moved from Huntington Beach, CA where he was raised and moved to Wichita, KS. He came with us and we thought it might be better for him here and start with a clean slate. But that was not the case (although he did get is diploma here in Kansas.) I know that God has something better for him but he doesn’t seem to believe that anymore.
    I know you must get letters like this all the time but I really feel that you (both Dog and you Beth) can help him. Justin is adopted. We got him at age 2-1/2. We don’t really know what happened to him while with his birth mother other than it was not good. He has abandonment issues and a lot of anger and resentment toward his father and I. We love him soooooo much and just want to see him happy and to have a life where he takes responsibility for his actions. He is not living with us because we have let him come back home four different times but he doesn’t want to follow our rules while living with us or get a job. I’m so lonely for him and miss him but I don’t know how to help him or motivate him except to pray for him and send this letter asking for your help. PLEASE, PLEASE help him in any way you can. He is a very good and sensitive person inside. He just can’t seem to go there as he has to keep up the “tough guy” appearance. He is very scared and lonely. If you have the time I would appreciate an answer or any ideas you may have. Thank you in advance.
    Sincerely, Carol McClure

  • We could really use a voice in trying to have our grandson placed with us after our daughter who is now 25 was accused of using and manufacturing Meth in her home. Our daughter has not exactly been compliant and her father (whom I am with) has been to prison in 1987 and everything from that point up to 2009 driving while license suspended is being held against us. He already served his time and WE (including our grandson) are still paying for his past. I on the other hand have no criminal background in fact worked as a CO for a prison in FL and last worked for Dept. of Homeland Security. We have exhausted all avenues known to us and I remembered your going through a similar struggles in trying to have your grandson placed with you. I know that family is important to you and obviously by my reaching out to you it is as important to us! I would love to show you pictures of my grandson and particularly those showing the bond he and “Poppy” have together… Please any help would not be in vain and we are desperate for help!!! Please contact me, we don’t know where else to turn!

  • Hi,
    I know everyone is asking all kinds of things from you Dog but wondering if you ever contact anyone?? I have tried to reach you and would love to get an email from you personally. I have something to ask and would like to in private…please email me at ben.leypoldt@gmail.com.
    Are you going to be in Nebraska for anything any time soon???

  • Dog———in 1968, I arrested a 18 year old Navy awol. I hand cuffed him in front and to the leather door handle. It was 4-pm and I asked him if he were hungry knowing that he would not get anything in the brig until morning. He ate his big-mac fries and milkshake by bending over to his hands. I talked to him at length like you do. I begged him to turn his life around. Eleven years later he and his mom and dad called me at my office and thanked me-he passed his CPA exam——————-retired SA Westwood office LA it brought tears to my eyes–keep up the good work Don———– My wife was born and raised in HI–38 years today together.
