Die heutige Rassehundezucht steckt in einer tiefen Krise: Die durch das Ausstellungswesen praktizierte jahrzehntelange Selektion auf reine Äußerlichkeiten anstatt auf Gesundheit und Vitalität hat zu katastrophalen Konsequenzen geführt. Manche Rassehunde können kaum noch laufen, atmen oder sich auf natürlichem Wege fortpflanzen. Wie das passieren konnte und welche Wege zur Gesundung beschritten werden könnten, zeigt der anerkannte Kynologe Hellmuth Wachtel in diesem Buch. Nach einem kurzen Abriss über Evolution und Domestikation des Hundes unter Einbeziehung der neuesten molekulargenetischen Erkenntnisse geht Wachtel auf die Entstehung der verschiedenen Rassen und schließlich die Schauhundezucht als Erscheinung der Neuzeit ein. Frei von jeder Polemik, aber mit entschiedener Sachlichkeit klärt er über die Ursachen des Niedergangs auf und zeigt machbare Lösungsmöglichkeiten auf.
