Same, people think pitbulls are vicious killing machines, but my pitty is as sweet as can be. He got loose a few times and never once went after the kids outside or any of the other dogs that were outside at the time. Its all on how you treat them. However I will say this some dogs no matter the breed can be mean and vicious. I've had a dog that no matter how I treated it it was mean and would snap at people.
Most, if not all dogs' behaviour is subject to how you train them. I have a sweet pitbull that gets along with anybody that does not act threatening. Loves kids, too.
I also have a Chihuahua that would yap a lot, but funnier than that, she would try to stop yapping when we told her to shut up, and end up barking with her mouth closed. So It's probably something that is really just genetic, but cute as hell when it wasn't annoying. However, she would yap, but never act aggressive to other people. Usually after she sniffed them, she would roll over on her back in an attempt to receive a belly rub.

Sure any dog can be trained to be good or nice. But also ANY dog can at any time snap for no apparent reason, and some dogs are more dangerous than others if that happens.
Also some dogs are more prone to snapping and violent behaviour. If you don't think behaviour is part of a breed, then you don't know much about dogs.

It's you that knows nothing of dog breeds, the breeds most likely to go "ballistic" are the ones that never make any list of "bad" dogs, for every Pit Bull bit you hear about the press ignores dozens of dig bites from the most beloved breeds, most "bad" breeds get their reputations from dog fighting rings, and you can usually find just about any breed there.
