Pit bulls may have a bad rap, but an adorable viral picture is quickly changing peoples’ minds.

While the media often sensationalizes pit bull attacks—giving the breed a bad name altogether, a picture entitled, “Your typical violent and aggressive pit bull” is challenging these misconceptions.

Garnering nearly one million views on Imgur and Reddit over the weekend, the picture features a friendly-looking Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Boom with a chick atop his head, cuddling in a basket with three rabbits.

The image and it’s ironic title present a major contradiction between the truth about pit bulls and the public’s negative perception of the breed as violent and aggressive.

Violent and aggressive? You be the judge!
