Wiley is one unique looking pup.  At 1-2 years old, Wiley came into the Bakersfield shelter as a stray, though you’d never know he’d spent time on the streets. He is not “hardened” in any way. To the contrary, he is a happy little guy with a forever-wagging tail, who just wants to be part of a loving family. He has been the perfect playmate to his toddling human foster-brother; in other words, he is excellent with kids. While his breed is something of a mystery, it looks as though he is perhaps a lab/Bassett Hound mix. If your family is in search of a sweet, furry guy to raise alongside your little ones, I hope you will consider Wiley.  Adoption applications are available above.
