Meet Wiley, The Cutest Dalmatian Dog With A Heart On His Nose!

Wiley the Dalmatian wears his heart on his nose. This one-year-old puppy made his name on the Internet thanks to that mark, and his more than 120,000 followers on Instagram can’t get enough of him. His human, Lexi Smith, 26, describes Wiley as “25 kilos of playful, clumsy, smug, hungry, loving, curious, wild, silly and happy love. No amount of pictures can fully capture what he is and what he means to me, he’s my best friend.”

Lexi, who lives in Colorado, met Wiley in Oklahoma on St. Patrick’s Day last year, and although his mark makes him stand out, it’s not the reason she chose him.

“He was part of a litter of 11 and 8 were males, so I had a hard time choosing. The heart was there, but not fully formed, and besides, the spots on the Dalmatians change when they grow up. I chose him because the breeder told me he slept, ate and cuddled, so we had a lot in common.”

Well, now the puppy has grown and developed. “Wiley has more personality in his body than any dog I’ve ever known.”

Smith claims that hiking is one of his favorite activities. “We’re lucky to live in Colorado and have beautiful, huge places to play and explore. He loves hiking or going to the giant dog parks here.”
