I strongly urge you to get a 3 - 5 year old great dane. They are
friendly and, in my experience, they avoid conflict at all costs. A
male would probably fair better with the wild animals. If nothing
else, maybe do a little research - they're a Great breed of dog.

You recommend a Great Dane as an outside dog? What is your
thinking behind this?

Am just lurking here but a Great Dane, for an outside dog who may have to
deal with coyotes? I wouldn't.
