Christian Pulisic is, by all accounts, poised to be the future face of soccer in America. He’s already a goal-scoring machine with Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga. He wasn’t able to single-handedly score enough goals to help the USMNT qualify for the 2018 World Cup but at the end of the day he’s just a 19-year-old kid from Hershey, Pennsylvania and can’t carry the weight of an entire team on his shoulders.

Christian was in Washington D.C. for Christmas. That drive would take you roughly 2 hours and 30 minutes with minimal traffic. This time of year the roads are covered in ice and the driving is slow going. Chrisitan wasn’t able to get back to his home in Hershey on Christmas to spend time with his beloved dog, a dog who presumably lives at home with his parents while he plays soccer abroad over in Germany.

Nobody should be kept away from their dog on Christmas Eve, right? Right. So what’d Christian Pulisic do? He took to Twitter to see if any fans would pick his dog up from Hershey and drive it to him on Washington D.C. so that he could spend the holiday with his pup. Some superfans came through for him and all was right in the world. Here’s how it went down:
