Multiple ejaculates were collected from four male mongrel dogs. The second fraction and the small volume of third fraction from the ejaculates were divided and treated as follows : control; addition of the egg-yolk Tris extender to the semen at $37^{\circ}C$. group I; Removal of seminal plasma, group II; addition of the glycerolated extender at $4^{\circ}C$, group III Removal of seminal plasma and addition of glycerolated extender at $4^{\circ}C$. The semen cooled to $4^{\circ}C$ was equlibrated for 2hrs and preserved in refrigerator at $4^{\circ}C$. The preserved semen was evaluated for kinetics, morphology, motility and thermoresistance daily for 3 days. 1. The kinectics after preserved days 2 and 3 of group I was significantly higher than that of control(p<0.05). 2. There were no significant difference in abnormal morphology of each group between the periods of storage. 3. The motility after preserved day 1 and days 3 of group I was significantly higher than that of others(p<0.05), and the molity after preserved days 2 of group I and III was signficantly higher than that of others(p<0.05). 4. When the molity of preserved semen was measured during incubation at $37^{\circ}C$, the motility of four groups was declined at similar rates. There was no effect of removal of seminal plasma and glycerol addition on thermoresistance.
