I think you asked this already.

This chapter addresses the idea of the harshness of nature and the people out of place in it. This chapter contrasts the readers conceptions of "civilization" and "wildness." When the dogs are sold to Hal and his relatives, their decline is rapid and painful. These people are described as "manifestly out of place."
