You can spot a pit bull just about anywhere these days. Catch a glimpse of them living the good life with their pals at a dog park, accompanying their owners on a nice day outside of a coffee shop or assisting the elderly as therapy dogs. It’s true – pit bulls have a love for life that exudes confidence, curiosity and pure happiness. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that many celebrities have pit bulls and love every second of it.
