Celebrity Pittie Parents and Why We Love Them!

October 19, 2023


National Pit Bull Awareness Day is just around the corner—October 28 to be exact—and we’re so excited for one of our favorite days of the year that we’re kicking off our celebrations early. This year, we wanted to give a shout-out to some amazing pittie parents who, simply by loving their pit bull, are helping to put an end to the unfair and untrue stigmas surrounding this breed!

Dave Bautista doesn’t just play a superhero in movies, he’s a real-life superhero fiercely advocating for animal welfare and dog adoption. But he doesn’t stop there! He is also the adoring pet parent of not one, but four adopted pitties.

Bautista isn’t the only one cuddling up with pitties on the couch, check out these nine other celebrity pit bull parents! Some even have separate Instagram accounts just for their pets!
