When we were researching our trip to Turks & Caicos, we kept on seeing people “walk shelter dogs” on social media and blog posts from a place called Potcake Place. Being natural dog- & cat-lovers, we had to take a little doggy out for a walk!
We arrived right at opening and there was a line of people ready to walk dogs. This place is for puppies so all dogs are about less than 4-6 months. Everybody in front of us, kept on choosing the small, cute puppies to walk. There was one dog , around 6 months old (pictured above), who kept on going up to everyone, wanting to play. He was so energetic and playful that people opted for the smaller, calmer puppies.
At one point, the shelter staff put the 6-month-old puppy in the back, thinking no one was going to want to walk him. When it was our turn, we asked for “the dog that gets walked the least.” Soon after, they brought the 6-month-old puppy out from the back and we took him out for a walk at the beach.
There we played fetch with him and had a quality time. Thanks Potcake Place for making it easy to take a shelter dog on a walk! We definitely recommend this activity for anyone visiting the island. Who knows, you might find a new furry best friend 😉
