Of all the questions asked on this forum, this has to be one of the most bizarre (other than the burning of the girlfriend's you-know-what, anyway).

Why a Great Dane? Just because it's big? Great Danes are known as gentle giants; they're not aggressive, they're not used as attack dogs to my knowledge, and they'd rather lick your face than bite your throat.

I'd have gone with a more recognised breed of attack dog. Something bred and trained to slaughter people and animals by the dozen. Maybe not a German Shepherd in this case, but something more vicious like a Doberman or a Rottweiler.

the kats made for fighting and taking down animals larger than it. its more flexible and can deal more damage to the great dane. think of what it could do with its claws against at thing..

Lion would win, sadly. They are the natural, more dangerous predators.

Ok I really hate to tell you guys but the dane would win for the simple fact that cougars are in fact scaredy cats. A chihuahua could scare one off. I have been around big cats and hounds for a long time and not once have I seen a big cat fight for more than a min and then run. They want to get up a tree as fast as possible. And yes a hound WILL fight, just not other dogs.:cya:

We're talking about a fight to the death. The Puma would slaughter the dane.

I'm sure that most of us would agree, that a Great Dane could easily scare off a Puma. Given its size, and bark.

However, I think the reason the Puma's you've seen ran, is because they were lost, or just outside of their territory. They do not know what danger may befall them and when a dog sounds the alarm, who might come running? Or they may remember the sound of a shotgun, which comes after a barking dog.

However, should the Puma have reason to kill a Great Dane, it would not be an overly difficult task. And since this thread is back, I have an idea for a new one.
