The difference between the American and a Purebred is the backgrounds. The terminology means that Ok, heres an example:

i raise Alpines, Alpines are registered as both American and French or Pure. i also rasie both. The American term began after folks were dipping into other breeds of dairy goats to improve the Alpine breed. this created a big fuss and so the term for the ending 5 generations that would then be considered registerable as an Alpine was American. You cannot adulterate a French or Pure line, it must always be bred to that or else you will have a american. Did this help? Or did i confuse you more? Let me know.
