The answer is definitely NO. Lions are twice the size of the largest dog breed and certainly a lot stronger than the strongest dog breed. They are way more flexible and their jaws are can crush a rock. Moreover lions are wild animals and that means that everyday they fight for survival, thus they are used to fighting to the death instead of dogs.

To give you an idea of a dog's fighting skills compared to those of a lion, a dog would stand no chance against a coyote or hyena where as a lion could easily kill a whole pack of these animals on its own.

If a fight between a lion and a dog was to take place, the dog would be dead within 20".
