Royal Bahamian Potcake
About The Potcake (aka "Royal Bahamian Potcake") Breed The majority of our dogs are of mixed breeds, locally referred to as "Potcakes." This name is derived from a popular dish here, peas and rice. The "cake" that sticks to the bottom of the pot was usually thrown into the yard for the dogs (and in many cases, it still is). Potcakes are an officially recognized breed in the Bahamas!
Potcakes typically have smooth, short fur with little or no undercoat, cocked ears, a hound-like rib cage and long terrier-shaped faces. More rare are the shaggy or rough-coated Potcakes. The "typical" Potcake is brown, but colors range from party (brindle) to black, white, cream, yellow, and red. Adults stand about 24 inches high at the shoulder. Normal adult weight is 25 pounds in the bush, but once healthy and homed, they can weigh 30-45 pounds, depending upon bone structure.
Potcakes are genetically-engineered to tolerate heat, long-term physical stress, extreme competition for food, and a low protein diet. As pets, Potcakes comprise the "traits of the Potcake breed" and are highly-intelligent, fiercely loyal, and very enthusiastic, bonded companions. These dogs are generally uncommonly smart, easily-trained, and make the most loyal and loving companions you could ever want. They are usually so grateful to live in a house, that they almost housetrain themselves!
