Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Saves Puppies From Drowning

Dwayne Johnson Saves His 2 Puppies From Drowning in the Family Pool

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson had a very dramatic Labor Day weekend. The actor took to Instagram on Monday to share a terrifying (but also adorable) story about his two new puppies, Hobbs and Brutus. Dwayne posted a cute photo of himself holding the dogs while standing in his pool on Sept. 7, but while everything looks normal in the snapshot, it was actually taken after an almost-fatal accident.

"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," Dwayne 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. 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 cell phone to safety. Don't keep it in your pocket . . . like I did. #BRUTUSLives #HOBBSCanSwim #MyCellPhonesDead #AndNoMouthToMouthNeeded #HappyLaborDay."
