Sažetak
The relationship between the main characteristics of native semen and fertility in young military working dogs has been the subject of a very small number of studies. This research provides, for the first time in Croatia, a comprehensive semen evaluation of the military working dogs (MWD) owned by the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Croatia (MDRC). Nine virgin MWD (5 German Shepherd dogs and 4 Belgian Shepherd dogs, Malinois), aged 12 to 18 months (1.24 ± 0.19 years) were subjected to a clinical examination, B-mode ultrasonography of the testes, epididymis and prostate, semen evaluation at collection and after storage at 4 °C for 24, 48 and 72 h. The semen was evaluated based on the following parameters: colour, volume, pH, progressive motility, concentration, viability and functional integrity of the sperm membrane (HOS test and Bloom staining). The diluted semen samples were subjected to a longevity exam at 4 °C, and the semen quality was assessed after 24, 48 and 72 hours. The dogs were subjected to the second semen collection and evaluation after two months. In 7/9 of the virgin dogs, the semen was successfully collected by using digital manipulation at the first collection and in 8/9 of the dogs at the second collection, without the presence of a teaser bitch. All sperm quality parameters were within the optimal range. Sperm progressive motility and motility after 24 and 48 hours of storage was significantly higher in the second collection (p < 0.05). The percentage of morphologically normal spermatozoa was also higher in the second-collection specimens, although without a significant difference. This research has shown that it is necessary to include a variety of clinical and laboratory methods in order to get a complete insight into the breeding potential of dogs and choose those with the highest- quality characteristics for reproduction. Our results of the semen quality evaluation at collection and after storage indicate a high reproductive potential of military breeding and working dogs of the MDRC and offer a possibility of international trade of a high- quality genetic material.
