BORN September 17th, 2016



SIRE: Tschako V WÄllerhorst IPO3 KKl

DAM: Pixie v der Alte Baum

"Onyx" is everything we want our Knallhart Kennels canines to be. 


Onyx is a great addition to not only Knallhart Kennels but also our family. She is full of spunk, drive and personality, and we are all excited to see how this beautiful young lady continues to grow up. 

Onyx was born at Alte Baum Kennels, an elite working German Shepherd kennel owned and managed by Mike Williams, in Fort Dodge, Iowa. She is currently being trained for protection work and to compete in Schutzhund/IPO, following in the footsteps of her outstanding parents who both have working titles.

Onyx is a "old soul in a young body" as we have been told and she not only has the beauty but also the brains. She enjoys long car rides, swimming at the lake, training for obedience and protection work and will play fetch for hours.  Just like her parents she has incredible drive and intelligence. 

Right now we are enjoying young adulthood and also working on some important basic foundational skills that she will need for competition and her working career in the future. We have ambition to also cross train her on narcotics detection. 

She currently holds her BH title, AKC CD title and will be competing for her CDX, RN and IPO1 here in the near future. She also attended her first dock diving competition this summer and got 1st place in her novice class! 

Watch out for this girl we are looking forward to her future of competing and breeding.
