If the Dane grows up around children, and the children are nice and don't terrorize it the Dane will put its life on the line for the kids. As for getting along with the other dog, as long as the Dane pup grows up with it there should be no problems as long as the basset hound isn't mean to it. My Dane loves children and other dogs and he didn't grow up with them. However, the life span of a Dane isn't very long and the children would go thru a loss after the Dane is about 8-10 years old, maybe sooner. Another thing is the Dane HAS to be indoors. I cannot stress that enough. And you have to feed it TOP QUALITY food, or the Dane will live for... Maybe 5 years. This food has to have the right amount of protein and fat so the Dane doesn't grow to fast and get fractures bones.
