Dalmatians are well-known for their spots. But when a heart-shaped spot is placed right smack in the middle of his nose, such as the case of Wiley, people are bound to notice. But what’s special about this dog, apart from his heart nose, is that he also has quite a personality.
The puppy with a heart nose
When Lexi Smith adopted Wiley, she didn’t think very much of his heart-shaped nose. She knew that dalmatians’ spots change as they grow and the heart figure wasn’t as pronounced back then. Aside from that, Wiley had ten other siblings, so she feels it’s not the nose that drew her close to the pup.
The breeder told her that this puppy loves to sleep and snuggle, and Lexi likes that too! She felt an instant connection with this puppy and taking him in was one of the best decisions she ever made.
But as Wiley grows, his heart-shaped nose also becomes more prominent. Lexi, who loves photography, tries to document Wiley’s life regularly. She created an Instagram account for him and was surprised to see thousands of people are already adoring Wiley! And the dog’s followers are growing every day.
I love you more than your nose
But Lexi thinks there’s more to Wiley more than his nose. This dog is silly, stubborn and sweet all rolled into one. He particularly enjoys taking a hike in idyllic Colorado and riding the car with her.
Wiley is still that sleepy puppy Lexi have first known. He would snuggle close to her and doze off to sleep. On some days, she’d find Lexi chewing on a toy or a random thing. He is stubborn like most dalmatians are, but Lexi has come to live with it. She adores Wiley every day and with all her heart, with or without his heart nose.
