Dwayne Johnson Rescues His Drowning Puppies Hobbs and Brutus From Pool

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson continues to prove that he’s not only an amazing on-screen presence in his films, but he’s an even more amazing person in real life.  When he’s not busy blasting up enemies in action films, he’s busy helping out his fellow man and now his fellow animals.  Just this past Labor Day “The Rock” adopted to new puppies Hobbs and Brutus.  But Johnson was forced to use his Baywatch skills because one of them was drowning.

Johnson shared the story Monday on Instagram, alongside a photo of him standing in a pool, fully clothed, with one of the dogs in each hand.

Here’s the entire story:

“Here’s a fun Labor Day weekend story… We just decided to add two new members to our Johnson family. Baby French Bulldogs. In my right hand is BRUTUS and in my left hand is HOBBS,” he wrote. “Bring them home and immediately take them outside so they can start learning how to ‘handle their business and potty like big boys.’ I set them both down and they both take off in a full sprint and fall right into the deep end of our pool. HOBBS immediately starts doggy paddling while BRUTUS (like a brick) sink heads first to the bottom of the pool.”

Johnson continued, “I take off into a full sprint, fully clothed, dive in the pool, swim to the bottom, rescue my brick, I mean BRUTUS and bring him back to the edge of the pool. He was a little delirious.. took a moment, threw up all the water he swallowed and looked up at me as if to say, ‘Thank God you didn’t have to give me mouth to mouth!’ and then ran off to play with his brother.”

“A few lessons I’ve learned today,” he added. “A) Not all puppies have the instinct to doggie paddle. B) Some puppies (like BRUTUS) will be so in shock by experiencing water they will sink extremely fast so react quick. C) While spiriting to save your puppies life, before you dive in, try and throw your cel phone to safety. Don’t keep it in your pocket… like I did. #BRUTUSLives #HOBBSCanSwim #MyCelPhonesDead #AndNoMouthToMouthNeeded #HappyLaborDay.”
