The dog is done - A&E has canceled Dog the Bounty Hunter, citing "creative differences" with Duane "Dog" Chapman. According to TMZ, the network and Chapman had been negotiating over season 9, but the two sides couldn't meet in the middle.

The reality show lasted almost 250 episodes, and was spun off from Duane's appearance on A&E show Take This Job, which chronicles odd professions. The show reached international syndication, with airings in Australia, UK, Norway, and elsewhere.
