Potcake is the name given to the feral island dogs of the Bahamas and Turks & Caicos Islands. They where dubbed with this name because the locals use to feed the dogs the caked remains of the cooking pot from their " rice and peas" to the dogs.
As generations and years have passed, Potcakes have evolved into a breed that is incredibly smart, trainable, loyal and so very sweet and cuddly! They are smart and confident dogs that do best with experienced dog owners.
Potcakes are rescued from around the islands of the Bahamas and Turks & Caicos, usually near resort beaches. Litters of puppies, older dogs as well as individual puppies are often found wandering the islands. They are often rescued by tourists while they are on vacation, locals also find them in their backyards or some are even found on construction sites.
Potcakes can range in size anywhere between 35lb and 75 lb, but most will end up growing to be about 45-55 lbs. ( Although a few have been known to hit the 100lb mark! )
