Its my opinion that a dog is ultimately only as good or bad as its owner.
Exactly right...a dog is a reflection of it's upbringing and environment. The breed doesn't matter.

The breed does matter to some extent, otherwise I could hunt ducks over a Chow.* Border collies inherently want to herd things. Labradors want to carry things around in their mouths. And Goldens want to cling to you and shed all over you . . . .
Since Pits were originally a baiting and fighting breed, there's some aggression in the bloodlines - animal not people aggression because the handlers were in the pit with the dogs. BUT a well bred dog from good lines that is properly socialized and trained is not a problem.
*I almost said poodle, but you can hunt ducks over a poodle. See here: Up Close Photo.
