Sailin' was certified at 24 months with OFA Good Hips and Elbows (GS-54184G24F-T & GS-EL9194-T). Sailin' in September of 1999 also decided to get OFA in Cardiac and Thyroid and passed with flying colors (GS-CA61/34F/C-T & GS-TH59/34F-T). These OFA certifications earned Sailin' the Certificate of Health Excellent from the German Shepherd Dog Club of America.

Sailin' was bred on December 21, 1998 to the 1997 Grand Victor (the best male German Shepherd at theNational Specialty) AOE Ch. Mar Haven's Color Guard, HT, TC, "The Boss". Her litter of five was whelped February 23, 1999. She was bred again in January of 2000 to Ch.
