Simple answer. Some breeds have more aggressive tendencies. That doesn't make them automatically aggresive.
So many factors involved. Aggression based on fear. Aggression based on dominance. Aggresion to people, other dogs, etc.
Terriers are generally more aggressive towards other dogs and other animals then, say, a Beagle. A Beagle is a pack dog, thus more inclined to get along with other dogs.
Different lines of different breeds will also have more aggression towards other dogs, people, etc.
Some lines of GSDs, Mals are more apt to have a willingness to bite. Others lines wouldn't bite if their life depended on it.
Changing the publics mind on this is the whole problem in a nutshell. That's the unfortunate facts that creat BSL.
