A bacteriological and serological investigation was conducted in a commercial breeding kennel in Taegu city in which canine abortion caused by Brucella canis occurred, and the family dogs in this area were also surveyed for Br canis infection during a period from March 1999 to May 2000. Of 195 dogs in the breeding kennel, 50(25.6%) were found to be bacteremic and 82(42.1%) were shown to be positive for canine brucellosis by both bacteriological and serological test. Of 357 family dogs examined, 17(4.8%) had an agglutinin titer of 1 : 160 or higher. Of these 17 dogs, 5(2.8%) were from indoor dogs and 12(6.7%) were from outdoor dogs. Only 2 mongrel dogs(1 female and 1 male) of 17 serologically positive dogs showed an agglutinin titer of 1 : 2560 or higher and Br canis was isolated from their blood.
