About the Book
““Potcake” dogs are a mixed breed of wild dogs found on the islands of the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos. People all over the islands leave their dinner pots outside their back doors and these wild dogs eat the food caked on the bottom of the cooking pots. After a while, the wild dogs became known as Potcakes.
This book is dedicated and inspired by the many dogs who find a way to live through extreme hardships.”
