Oreo is Linton’s Cottages’ friendly and playful “watch dog” who lives next to the office in her luxurious open-air dog house and chain-link run.
A pot cake* puppy rescued from the Treasure Cay dump, she was adopted by Lee Linton from a laundry basket filled with rescue puppies being driven around Green Turtle Cay on the back of a golf cart. Oreo’s friendly, upbeat personality makes her a favorite with our guests – and an entertaining and welcome companion on golf cart trips into New Plymouth.
*Pot cakes are a distinctive mixed-breed dog unique to the Bahamas and the Turks & Caicos Islands. Named after the thick residue at the bottom of a pot of peas and rice that Bahamians traditionally fed their dogs, most pot cake dogs can be identified by their smooth coats, cocked ears, and long faces.
