Von Proteaville is passionately run by owners Max and Anita Streich living in Cape Town, South Africa.

All our adults are KUSA-registered and our puppies are released with full registration to their new owners. We take great care to ensure our dogs and puppies are well-looked after, have plenty of space to live and play, and receive optimum nutrition for their individual needs. It is of utmost importance that new owners of puppies are also properly briefed on the puppies’ needs, including nutrition, exercise and grooming.
