Sponsor a Potcake Dog at the Humane Society of Grand Bahama

The Humane Society of Grand Bahama is a private, non-profit, charitable organization committed to alleviating animal over-population on the island, and further committed to the overall welfare of all animals of Grand Bahama.The majority of the dogs are of mixed breeds, locally referred to as “Potcakes.” This name is derived from a popular dish there, 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.

We have sponsored Paula. She is waiting for a loving home, and so many others are as well. Please click above and you will be redirected to the HSGB page. Then click the blue sponsor button to help with the funds needed to feed and care for these beautiful animals. We can’t save them all, but we can all try and sponsor one or two until they do find a home. Thanks in advance.

Dog saved from drowning with CPR – Tampa

A scary situation turns out ok in then end. We are so happy for this dog and it’s owner.

 

One of the witnesses, Ignacio Torano, 28, who lives on Davis Islands, said the dog drank too much water. “I was far away when I heard someone yell, ‘Can you get the dog, get the dog’,” he said. “This dog barely had his head above water,” said Torano, who frequents the dog park.

The dog’s owner ran into the water with her clothes on, Torano said, and lifted the dog out of the water, then brought her back to shore.

She wasn’t breathing.

In the video taken by Torano, you can see a crowd around the pup while someone is seen giving her chest compressions. It was her owner, Torano said, who was giving mouth-to-mouth, trying to revive her. A voice could also be heard yelling, “Come on, Xena! Come on my girl!”

Torano said he turned off the camera when he saw Tampa Firefighters in a firetruck pulling out of the parking lot, and he chased them down to help.

“They came out and sort of took over the situation,” said Torano.

After a few minutes, the dog was revived. “She’s sitting up! She’s sitting up!” someone yelled. Xena sat up and someone carried her away, while the crowd thanked each other for jumping into action so quickly.

Torano said he didn’t know the dog’s owner, but it appeared the dog would be OK…and he was right.
