"Unpleasant incident": As the influencer Cathy Hummels reports on her Instagram account, there have been "frictions" in the past between her then four-year-old son Ludwig and the one-year-old house dog Moon.

"In September 2022 it was no longer a snap, a pinch and no more growling for Ludwig, but a solid bloody bite," writes the 35-year-old.

As a result, her child had “enormous panic”.

After much thought, she therefore decided to give the dog away to a household without children.

Before that, she had obtained “therapeutic advice”.

The dog is doing well in the new environment.

"Moon is in my closest circle with a very close confidante," she wrote.

Previously, some followers had wondered that Hummels had stopped showing up with the animal on social media.

"I'm deeply saddened by the departure of Moon, but my son always comes first," the presenter continued.

She asked her followers to accept the decision.

"Please be considerate of my/our feelings," she wrote.

"I blame myself enough."

Hummels (self-description: "Mom & presenter & Spiegel best-selling author") was more than 13 years with former national soccer player Mats Hummels.

The couple divorced in December after a long separation.

“The last few years have been tough.

Ludwig and I were alone a lot, he had to do without his dad a lot, and a happy mom.

To an intact family.

On constants,” she now writes.

She was very worried about her son's psyche and thought an animal could compensate for the inconsistency.

"I wish it would have worked with the three of us," she sums up now that Moon has moved out.
