Using a Dogo to hunt boars and expecting it to eradicate the entire boar population around your area are different things.
There's a reason boar hunters put kevlar vests on their catch dogs. Boars are no joke. Mountain lions ... an LGD might be able to scare away a mountain lion, but if the thing is determined to attack, the dog is not winning.
