| Boston Terriers are bred down in size from pit bulls and other fighting dogs, but modern varieties are not very aggressive. The Boston Terrier was the first pure American breed to be recognized by the American Kennel Club. Boston Terriers are members of the Brachycephalic breeds. Brachycephalic comes from Greek roots meaning short head.
