49ers give puppy to police officer who’s K9 recently passed away

SANTA CLARA – If Jimmy Garoppolo doesn’t have you feeling good, this video should do the trick.

Juan Barrera is a 49ers season ticket holder and member of the Woodland Police Department. Recently his K9 Peydro, who was retired after he was hit by a car chasing a suspect, passed away unexpectedly.

Well, Sunday Barrera will be going home with a brand new puppy.

Barrera wasn’t the only one the 49ers hooked up on Christmas eve.

The 49ers invited Naval-veteran Generald Wilson to sing the national anthem before the game. During a timeout in the first half the 49ers organization gifted Wilson with a 49ers jacket, and in the pocket were two tickets to watch Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Wilson was elated after realizing what the tickets were, jumping around and slamming his fist against the turf.

The 49ers have done a fantastic job giving back to the faithful during their ‘Faithful Appreciation Day,’ which is really the least they can do for sticking with the team over the last few years.
