Growing up, I always wanted to have a Daxie, but being above average height, my mom used to say that I would look silly with a Daxie by my side!
However, while working in the USA, I got my first Daxie, Polo. I was just smitten with this gorgeous chocolate dapple boy.
When I came back to South Africa in 2004, I founded Von Zioli Kennels.
I am married to Sias Grobler, and we have two children, Zionné and Renier, my main “puppy-socialisers”. They love every litter and they will pick their favourite out of each litter. I am so blessed that they share my love for daxies.
Since the Daxies aren’t exactly vicious guarddogs, I have 2 Irish Wolfhounds for protection and a ‘size’ balance in the pack…. Vixen and Fiana are my gentle giant.
We love our daxies and they are all raised as part of my home and family.
P.s. I am proud to say that my mother is now a Daxie-owner as well!!!
