Dalmatians have a distinctive appearance that has been present in history for centuries, from early 17th-century paintings to modern pop culture references. These lovable dogs are known for their friendly personality and have become popular work and family pets. One famous Dalmatian, Wiley, gained internet fame through Instagram thanks to his adorable heart-shaped nose spot. With over 122k followers, Wiley is the beloved companion of his 26-year-old human mom, Lexi Smith, who describes him as “goofy, clumsy, sassy, curious, crazy, and happy love.” Dalmatians typically have litters of 6 to 9 pups, and Wiley was born in Oklahoma before crossing paths with Lexi on St. Patrick’s Day in 2018. These puppies are born all white and develop their iconic spots as they mature. Despite numerous pictures, Lexi says that no image can fully capture the essence of her best friend, Wiley.
Although the heart-shaped marking on Wiley’s nose was quite noticeable, Lexi insists that it wasn’t the sole reason for her choosing him. With 8 boys in a litter of 11, it was a challenging decision to make. While the heart shape was present, it wasn’t fully developed, and dalmatian spots tend to transform as they age. Instead, Lexi picked Wiley based on the breeder’s description that he spent most of his time sleeping, snuggling, and eating – qualities that Lexi could relate to.

The Dalmatian breed is known for its high energy and love for outdoor activities, making them the perfect match for adventurous individuals. Lexi shared her experience with Wiley, describing the pup as having an abundance of personality that surpasses any other dog she’s encountered. Despite his small size, Wiley’s personality shines bright and brings joy to those around him.
Although Wiley loves to snuggle, his Dalmatian nature makes him highly active. Fortunately, Lexi mentioned that their location allows for easy access to outdoor spaces, which is great for letting Wiley expend all of his excess energy.
