Celebrity Pit Bulls!

Dog: Janet / Guardian: Fiona Apple

By Briana Fugitt

You may have heard several months ago that singer Fiona Apple canceled her entire tour when she discovered her beloved pit bull, Janet, was losing her battle with cancer. Fiona rescued Janet at just 4 months old, after she had been found tied to a tree, with the telltale multiple bite wounds of a bait dog used in fighting rings. Fiona and Janet spent nearly 14 years together. In a heartfelt note to her fans (you can read it here) Fiona asked for understanding and sympathy so that she may spend as much time as possible with her pup.” I am staying home, and I am listening to her snore and wheeze, and reveling in the swampiest, most awful breath that ever emanated from an angel. And I am asking for your blessing.” Fiona’s love and bond to her dog is something all of us dog lovers can understand. What a lucky dog Janet was to have been loved so much, and what a lucky person Fiona was to have found her.
