Reality star – real name Duane Chapman – was devastated when his wife Beth lost her battle with cancer 11 months ago.
He is now engaged to his girlfriend Francie Frane, the second woman he has been proposed to since Beth’s death.
Francie, 51, went to Instagram to reveal that Dog, 67, had asked the candlelight question in their Colorado home.
“So excited for this new chapter,” she wrote, sharing a comfortable photo of them.
Referring to Beth, she added, “Thank you very much for all the encouraging comments, Dog and I really appreciate it. We know that God has brought us together and we have no doubt about it !!
“Either one of us can replace what we had with Bob & Beth and we don’t want to… What we do know is that God brought together two people who traveled a dangerous road and showed us that the LOVE is possible again
“And as wonderful, loving and kind as you all think the dog is, IT IS AND MORE !! I LOVE YOU DUANE LEE “
Francie told The Sun Online that she did not expect the proposal.
She said, “I think I went to get food and then when I came back, he had turned off all the lights with just a few lights on and a bunch of burning candles …
“So I put all the food in the kitchen and I went in and he said, ‘I know God brought you into my life and I don’t want to spend a moment without you. “
“And he got down on his knees and opened the ring box and said, ‘Do you want to marry me and spend the rest of our lives together?’
“Who can say no to that?” It was wonderful. “
Francie first shared a photo of her and Dog together on April 11, and he shared the same photo for his own account five days later.
Dog’s latest offer to Moon-Angell, then a girlfriend at the time, caused a riff between him and some of his 12 children.
He posed the question to Moon on The Dr Oz Show in February as he responded to accusations that he had passed too quickly, claiming that Beth wanted him to be happy.
Turning to a shocked Moon, he said, “I didn’t tell you I was going to do this, but it’s The Dr. Oz Show. I think that will end a lot of things.
“Moon Angell do you want to marry me?” “
But everyone was shocked when she rejected him.
She said, “We are friends, I love you like a friend. I don’t see you like that, I love you and Beth like my friends.
“I can’t marry you, right now, I don’t see you like that. “
Dog later admitted that he had falsified the proposal to prove that he and Moon were only friends, but admitted that he would marry her down the line if his children approved of it.
But the coup caused problems with his relatives.

In particular, her daughter Lyssa had expressed resentment at her romance with Moon.
They later reconciled, and it is said that the children of Dog gave their blessings to his new relationship.
Lysssa and a close family friend, Rainy Robinson, previously insisted that they were satisfied with the match and “couldn’t be happier” for Dog.
Dog and Francie were introduced when her husband Bob started working at Dog’s mansion.
Bob died tragically a few months before Beth.
Dog and Francie moved in earlier this year and released their love story in March.
