A little boy from Portland, Oregon, who is battling a brain tumor, was granted a day of cuddles with some adorable puppies, thanks to the Portland Timbers soccer team. In a video shared by the team, Derrick Tellez lies on the floor and is covered with pups provided by the non-profit organization Pile of Puppies. Its founder Jennifer Trepanier told Storyful that Derrick is “the sweetest kid” who loves soccer, and that he previously had the “opportunity to participate as the goalkeeper for Portland Timbers and met the whole team.” In the video, Derrick appeared to enjoy some quality time with the playful pups, all of which were decked out in Portland Timbers gear.
