Comment of Lavar Ferguson:
Potcake in terms of the dog is related to potcake in terms of cooking in that, after the pot of rice or grits is emptied only the burnt portion is left which may generally be unwanted. This is similar to the dog, after dogs have crossed breed so much pedigree is downsized, leaving a unwanted specimen.
