| Boston Terriers are bred down in size from pit bulls and other fighting dogs, but modern varieties are not very aggressive. Boston Terriers are members of the Brachycephalic breeds. Brachycephalic comes from Greek roots meaning short head. Boston Terriers are descended from English Bulldogs crossed with terriers. Boston Terriers were first bred by Robert C. Hooper of Boston.
