GSDhistorian I know what you mean.... i can't believe the male turned and ran to leave Gabi to fight this animal alone. Had the male jumped in to help her, maybe her injuries would not have been as bad.

Nigel This happened in 87 before the wall came down, while Gabi sounds like a fantastic GSD, she earned her statue. I'm a bit surprised by the action of the other one. I would think there would be some signs that dog was lacking.

Gabi, the Brave Dog

The result sounds like most would imagine, she got her clock cleaned, however she defiantly showed fearlessness, a trait lacking in the other guard dog that ran off.
She deserves the statue.

GSDhistorian Thanks for posting the other link and commenting! :-) Yea, i got these people acting like i made it up and also twisting my words,lol, i came right out and said the dog was wounded bad, but the hole point of the story was the German shepherd had the courage to take on such a dangerous animal like a jaguar and even if the dog took a beating, she did enough to save the guard from getting mauled and i read in other stories she apparently did some damage to the jaguar.. prob not a lot, but obviously some. I personally love my GSD more then almost anything in this world and even though she would probably do the same thing as this dog, i would rather the jaguar get me then her because im just as protective of her as she is me

What about the link i posted? Did i take the time to make up a fake link for no reason?? What about the statue at the zoo of the dog and the story?? Did i build this statue myself and go deliver to the Belgrade zoo myself just to make up a story?? Man, people need to really use common sense before saying dumb things.

Baillif Defeat is probably a less than accurate description of what happened

huntergreen when i was stationed in san diego naval hospital, i would often walk across the street and watch them feed the large cats. 2 seconds of a brawl between a gsd and a "cat', and the gsd is done for. heck, i recently saw a bear turn and swat a pit bull mix, one swat with the razor sharp claws disemboweled this 70 pound dog who died on the spot. gsd are amazing dogs, but they have their limits. now if this was a declawed toothless old jaguar, then i could see it.

She had months of recovery, so she was seriously hurt. She kept the jaguar busy, while help was called. She played the role of prey and predator. She probably knew the zoo inside and out and the cat didn't, a big advantage for her, one that might have made her the survivor. She didn't kill him, but she kept him at bay.

True, one bite from a jaguar can cut him to pieces
But miracles happen >.>
