My family wants to get a dog but every dog on petfinder is half pit bull and described in this weird way where it's like they're hiding something terrible about it.

Where the fuck do people get their dogs from
>>
just go to the shelter and look. it's free to look and lots of places don't keep petfinder updated all that well because it's not very important.
>>
Shelter. The dogs are screened for health and temperament problems and they are already fixed and vaccinated.
>>
Is there something wrong with pit bulls?

No.

They're scary. So are most of their owners.

Pitbulls have a bad rap cuz they're naturally a more aggressive dog that appeals to dipshit owners, who only exacerbate an existing breed temperament issue. That being said, I've known both awesome and terrible pitbulls. Much like with every dog, it really boils down to the owner.

they're a perfectly fine breed if trained well, but they are more prone to snap and go violent if not trained under a disciplined hand.

Not any more aggressive than a golden retriever. Also, many people call a dog a 'pitbull' without really knowing, it's a generic term.

you read the chart backwards

Definitely go into the shelters in person. Online catalogs are ok, but they might not be up-do-date, and yeah, they are saturated with pits and pit mixes because people are assholes and breed them or adopt/buy them without researching their temperament.

Pits are fine; they are just SUPER high energy. They need to be exercised and stimulated or they will get destructive. They are friendly towards people but a lot of the time do have a tendency to be aggressive to other, unknown animals. Again, people are assholes and don't raise them right. They can also be very protective of their owners/family.

If you're looking for a particular breed, you could research rescues in your area. Some pet stores like Petsmart usually partner with local adoption agencies and have adoption events where they bring some of the pets to the store in the hopes of being adopted out, and there are all kinds of breeds at those events. Again, you can always go to shelters in person as well. If you want to spend money, you could always research breeders as well.
