Dwayne Johnson Turns Superhero: Saves Puppies From Drowning
Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson wears many hats on his shiny bald head, pro-wrestler, actor, and now straight-up Superhero. The man will not only take you down with a Rock-Bottom, but also has just saved two puppies from drowning. Read on to find out how.

Dwayne Johnson got two new Bulldog puppies ‘Brutus’ and ‘Hobbes’ home, and what happened after that is the stuff of legends, best told by the man himself from his Instagram post:

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

The high points of the story are: The Rock lets them out to “potty like big boys,” puppies dive into the swimming pool, Brutus starts to drown. The Rock will of course, have none of this weak drowning business, dives in fully-clothed, saves the puppies. In his own words:

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

The story even comes with a bittersweet lesson: “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.”

The man is truly a legend, apart from starring in at least six blockbuster movies in a year, and maintaining the fitness regimen of of a professional athlete while he is at it. He even loves puppies, who seem to obey him like some kind of beast-master.

 

My animal magnetism. Or he just smells the bomb tacos I just ate. #tbt

The Rock training to star in as the super-powered Black Adam in the upcoming Shazam.

Of course the way he is going, the soon only super-hero character worthy of Dwayne Johnson will be the Rock himself, and the Rock is already the Rock.
