The internet loves a cute pet – and this one may be the cutest we’ve seen. Dogs are already all around great news – and dogs with heart patterns. Well, that just takes the biscuit. This is one pooch who truly must be seen to be believed.
Wiley, the Instagram famous dalmatian, has gone viral for his incredibly cutesy markings. We think he’s adorable – and his one hundred and twenty thousand fans seem to agree. Scroll on for some of the cutest dog pictures you’ve ever seen.
And who could blame us? They’re basically the best things about being alive.
Wiley the dalmatian is the latest pet to enjoy the heady heights of Instagram fame.
By some happy accident, he’s ended up with the cutest marking we could possibly imagine – a heart right on the tip of his nose.
The one-year-old quickly rose to Insta fame thanks to his unique markings.
“No amount of pictures could ever fully capture all that he is and all that he means to me, he’s my best friend,” she claims.
But he now lives with owner Lexi Smith in Oklahoma.
“The heart was there, but not fully formed to the point where I believed it would stay since dalmatian spots change so much as they grow.”
“Wiley has more personality bundled up into his little body than any dog I have ever met.”
“He loves hiking or going to one of the many massive dog parks here.”
He’s also partial to sitting in the passenger seat of a car and pretending he’s driving – plus he still totally loves naps.
According to his mom, he also has a tendency towards that typical dalmatian trait of stubbornness, too.
“Usually, it’s a giggle paired with shaking my head, laughing off total frustration from his stubbornness, but that’s part of owning the breed.”
“If you can’t laugh it off and be creative in finding a solution and training the naughty traits out of them, life with a dalmatian would be such a challenge.”
“I have been really lucky with Wiley, though. He has the best heart, and I’m not talking about the one on his nose. He loves everyone he meets and is always so excited to make new friends.”
Wiley and Lexi are super close, with the pooch apparently barely leaving her side.
And Lexi isn’t alone. It seems the whole world is obsessed with this adorable doggo.
“Some people recognize him as ‘that dog from the internet’ – a lot of people notice the heart nose,” Lexi explains.
Lexi’s clear talent for photography has also propelled her Instagram to the height of internet fame.
“Photography has always been something that I have toyed and experimented with, and suddenly I had an adorable puppy who made the perfect model.”
“I have a personal account, but creating a separate one dedicated specifically to Wiley seemed like a great way to kind of store all my photos of him and keep a running timeline of his life.”
“It truly started as something meant for just me and maybe some of my friends to see his growth and keep the memories of every stage and event with Wiley.”
“When the account first started growing I remember thinking ‘Wow, what if he hits 5,000 followers!’ I never in a million years could have imagined it would be what it is now. And it’s still growing.”
“I am constantly amazed, shocked, but mostly so grateful. It has been a fun little adventure, that’s for sure.”
Wiley’s heart markings are uber-cute – but it seems they’re not even the best thing about him!
