His dog just wanted to show him a little love, but Greg Manteufel ended up with both his legs amputated. He went to the emergency room with what he thought was a bad flu, but it turns out he had a rare blood infection that is found in dog saliva. After his blood pressure and circulation dropped, he ended up having to get his legs amputated.
The dog's saliva contained a bacteria, capnocytophaga, that can cause severe infections in people with weakened immune systems. It is spread through bites or close contact with infected dogs.
His family has setup a GoFundMe to help cover the costs of several more surgeries that Greg will need. You can find that HERE
