Alexander & Ferro
Alexander and Ferro
Alexander Epp became confined to a wheelchair at the age of 21 after a car accident. However, this didn’t prevent him from undertaking many tours on a handbike, complete with tent and accompanied by one or more stray dogs. These ‘village dogs’ lived completely independent lives, without benefit of training or human companionship, and yet chose to follow Alexander on his adventures, developing a close bond with him as they did.
This experience led to Alexander writing his first book Friendship instead of dominance (Kynos, 2003), and acquiring his own dog, the German Shepherd Ferro, who features in this book. Sadly, at the age of just six, Ferro succumbed to a congenital heart defect and died.

Alexander does not have a dog at the moment as he feels that none could replace his beloved Ferro. Also written by Alexander is All about Wheelchairs (Trias verlag, 1998).
