PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - You may know Peyton Manning, the legendary former NFL quarterback, but it's also a local dog.
Peyton is recovering after a run-in with a bear.
Tim Stradling's nine-year-old Maltese Terrier "Peyton Manning" sadly lost his leg after being attacked by a bear in his yard.
The attack happened near Armbrust Wesleyan Chuch in Mt. Pleasant on Monday night.
However, after hearing about the attack, Peyton Manning - the quarterback - called Stradling to check up on the dog that shares his name.
According to a report in the Trib, Manning and Stradling talked for about ten minutes.
Manning then promised he'd send a gift to the Stradling family.
