Duane "Dog" Chapman and Moon Angell are sparking engagement buzz, seven months after Beth Chapman's death. The rumored couple recently sat down with Dr. Oz, and in a preview clip for next week's episode, they address their relationship.

"I am a lot happier with her around," the Dog's Most Wanted star says.

Angell later adds, "I have lots of enemies right now."

At one point, a very emotional Dog proposes.

"Moon Angell, will you marry me?" he asks, while a shocked Dr. Oz looks on.

As for whether he and Angell are actually engaged, a source close to the pair tells Yahoo Entertainment, "It's not what you think."

Meanwhile, TMZ reports the proposal was "not legit." Dog was apparently "overly emotional and got caught up in the moment. We're told he did not give her a ring during the taping, and they are not engaged."

However, TMZ notes that "everyone in the studio" at last week's taping "thought Dog meant it." Apparently, Dog told Angell he loves her and that God encouraged him to propose during a bathroom break.

Curious fans asked Angell — who was maid of honor at Dog and Beth's 2006 wedding — if she is engaged. She replied, "he asked ... watch Oz."

Dog's family is upset over his relationship with Angell — whatever it may be. The former Dog the Bounty Hunter star’s daughter, Lyssa, claimed Angell moved in and replaced Beth's items in the closet. Lyssa also alleged Angell dated her brother before her father.

In an interview earlier this month, Dog explained that Angell was helping him heal his broken heart. Beth died of cancer in June.

"Moon has been a trustworthy and loyal friend to me for over 20 years," he told Radar Online of his longtime personal assistant. "She has been with my family through many ups and downs. All my children are grown and gone on their own, there’s no one left to help me."

"Moon is experienced. It’s just that," he continued. "Who knows what my future holds, but right now I need her. There will never be another Mrs. Dog but that doesn’t mean I have to be so sad."

Dog promised his late wife he would never remarry.

"I know Almighty God hears my broken heart and I didn’t ask him for another Mrs. Chapman, but I asked him for a friend and He gave me Moon," he declared.

Angell and Dog's interview on The Dr. Oz Show airs on Monday, Feb. 3.
