Now that i think about it, a true match for a mountain lion would be a Neapolitan Mastiff, since they were actualy USED to fight against lions in colosseums. Either them or the Alano Espa├▒ol

The great Dane would win if you gave it a scooby snack

That's a good point there. I assume this thread assumes no performance-enhancing substances?

Oh, even with performance enhancing substitutes, I think a puma would win. Danes have such long legs I don't think they'd stay up for long once a puma took a swipe at them.

Or a beer.(Catch that reference)

Depends on; Is it pure or a mix? If it's a mix, it would most likely win. If it's pure, it'd end up as dinner for a mountain lion. Good thing their countries of origin doesn't have mountain lions!

A mix with some muscle. Good point.

Something the size of a Great Dane, not weighed down by bad genetics. Lightweight, fast, agile, powerful, bred for battle.

That would be scary.

It's really funny to hear all the stuff about "fast, agile, powerful" when comparing a dog to a big cat. Big cats just plain kick ass, the big advantage that some breeds of dogs have is their tenacity and toughness. That, and some breeds that are hard to kill in a few swipes or bites (see: Chow Chow dogs, due to their mane, or maybe some pariah dogs.)

Comparing dogs to cats is like comparing tanks to infantry. Cross a Great Danes with a Wolf/Siberian Husky/German Shepherd and you have a killer race!

I think a better fight would be a pissed off Tibetan Mastiff versus Mountain Lion. Not the Americanized Tibetan Mastiff either. A real one.

To be honest, dogs are rarely a solitary killer as opposed to the puma. Just look at wolves. Or wolf/dog mixes. As such a Mastiff was never really a killer dog. A terrier is a bigger killer actually. Only dogs with the stamina size and tenacity to actually outlast the puma would stand a chance.

The mastiff is basically just a big oaf.

One that can hunt humans very well. But not one that can tackle a puma which is a completely differerent breed of predator.
