Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Fearlessly Saved Adorable Puppy From Drowning

by 3 years ago

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. 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. 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.. 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

What did you do this Labor Day Weekend? Drink til you puked all over yourself then nurse your vicious hangover at a packed beach? While you were stuffing your face full of grilled meats, Dwayne Johnson, had no time for typical holiday weekend festivities because he was too busy being a hero.

The Rock adopted two adorable French bulldog puppies named Brutus and Hobbs. However the puppies had other ambitions, and began exploring their new home, including the deep end of Johnson’s pool.

The Rock describes his adventurous foray into daddyhood:

Seems like Dwayne may have to change the one sinking puppy’s name from “Brutus” to “The Rock” for his lack of swimming abilities.
