Pit Bulls have a huge fanbase with Hollywood stars. Don’t believe us? Just take a look at all the celebs who adore their Pitties!
1. Kaley Cuoco
Kaley Cuoco is a major advocate for Pit Bull awareness. She has called pit bulls “the greatest dogs in the world” and has three bully-breed rescues, Loretta, Norm, and Shirley. At her wedding, she even had a cake made for her then-husband (they just announced a divorce), pro tennis player Ryan Sweeting, with a giant tennis ball and their three pups!
The actress frequently mentions the misconceptions about the breed on social media and has partnered with Angel City Pit Bulls to make a PSA for the dogs.
2. Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba’s adorable white American Bull Dog is named Bowie, after musician David Bowie. Alba specifically found a new home after her daughter, Honor, was born but one of her major requests was a large yard for her dogs (she also has a pug named Sid). Her designer created custom-made bunk beds in the kitchen for the two pups – lucky dogs!
3. Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston adopted a Pit Bull mix puppy in 2012 with her then-boyfriend (now husband!) Justin Theroux and named her Sophie after Sophie’s Choice.
4. Jessica Biel
Jessica Biel loves her Pit Bull pup so much, she’s created a weekly Twitter/Instagram hashtag to showcase their love, #TuesdaysWithTina. If you live in Hollywood anywhere near Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s home, you are likely to spot her hiking, playing at the beach, or wandering around town with Tina by her side.
5. Rachel Bilson
Way back when, former fiancé, Adam Brody, gifted Bilson with a Pit Bull named Penny Lane for her birthday. When the couple broke up the pup didn’t have to choose parents – the couple decided to share custody of the dog, since they both loved her so much!
6. Katherine Heigl
Heigl has always been a long-time animal supporter and even founded the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation with her mother to promote animal welfare. In 2011, the actress pulled a two-month-old Pit Bull puppy from the California City Shelter who was previously used as a bait dog in dog fights. Heigl and her family have eight rescued dogs – talk about a full house!
