Der Hund als Teil der menschlichen Kultur

Ohne Stella gäbe es dieses Buch nicht. Der Labradormischling aus dem Tierheim inspirierte John Homans dazu, sich in die komplexe Welt der Hunde mit all ihren Facetten zu vertiefen, von der Stammesgeschichte bis zur Tierrechtsbewegung, von Zuchterfolgen und Designerhunden bis hin zum steten Wandel der Beziehung zwischen Mensch und Hund.

Homans hatte das Tierheim aus denselben Gründen aufgesucht wie viele andere Menschen auch – ihm waren Hunde aus seiner Kindheit vertraut, er suchte einen Gefährten für seinen kleinen Sohn und vielleicht auch einen Vorwand, um ausgedehnte Streifzüge durch sein Viertel zu unternehmen. Schnell fügt sich Stella in den Tagesablauf der Familie ein, und mehr noch: Sie wird, anders als die Hunde seiner Jugend, wie ein vollwertiges Familienmitglied behandelt. Tierarztrechnungen in astronomischer Höhe, Diskussionen über richtige Ernährung und ausreichende Bewegung sowie die Sorge, ob sie wohl glücklich ist – all dies wirft die Frage auf, warum sich das Leben von Hunden in unserer Gesellschaft so verändert hat, wo doch die Hofhunde aus Homans‘ Kindheit offenbar auch ganz zufrieden gewesen waren.

Der tiefgreifende kulturelle Wandel in der Beziehung zwischen Mensch und Hund und seine Hintergründe sind das Thema dieses Buches. John Homans hat dafür Gespräche mit Wissenschaftlern, Tierschützern, Züchtern und Trainern geführt und aktuelle Forschungsergebnisse aus ganz unterschiedlichen Disziplinen zusammengetragen. Hunde sind für viele von uns nicht zuletzt deshalb so faszinierend, weil sie mit einer Pfote in der Tier- und mit einer in der Menschenwelt stehen. So können sie uns eine Menge über Liebe, Tod und ethical beibringen – und da sie uns nah und dennoch so anders sind, auch über das Menschsein.
