We at World of Angus love dogs, but we especially love our pits! It’s almost impossible to resist their droopy faces and wiggling bums. Even the most famous stars of Hollywood are having a hard time fighting the urge to adopt all the bullies.
Here are 30 celebrities who absolutely adore their pit bulls!
1. Katherine Heigl
Katherine Heigl is known to be a little controlling and overly organized, much like her roles in film, but what many people don’t know about her is that she is a strong rescue advocate. Katherine Heigl has her own pack of eight rescue dogs, including some adorable pit bull pups. Here she is with her beloved rescue Apollo.
2. Jessica Alba
One of the hottest celebrities in Hollywood, Jessica Alba is also a proud pit bull mom. She can be seen walking her dog Bowie and her pug Sid.

Norman Reedus, our favorite Walking Dead star, is not only a wicked zombie slayer, but a loving pit bull parent. Rumor has it that Norman asked TWD producers if he could have his dog on the show. They decided against it, because fans would end up liking the dog more than the human characters.
