List of Celebrities Who Own Pit Bulls, loostly ranked by fame and popularity. Pit Bulls are a breed of dog that tend to get a bad rap. Not only are they frequently subjected to the cruel practice of dog fighting, but they are then labeled as dangerous or unadoptable.

Fiona Apple had a pit bull named "Janet" for over 14 years. When Janet fell ill, Apple even postponed her tour stating, "She’s my best friend and my mother and my daughter, my benefactor, and she’s the one who taught me what love is. I can’t come to South America. Not now. But I know that she is coming close to the point where she will stop being a dog, and instead, be part of everything. She’ll be in the wind, and in the soil, and the snow, and in me, wherever I go. I just can’t leave her now, please understand."

"Knocked Up" actress Katherine Heigl has a pit bull named "Apollo." She and her mother created a non-profit organization to support animal welfare. She has said, "We really need to send a message out and educate people about the breed. This cruelty cannot be tolerated."
