New puppy sinks like a rock; The Rock dives in to save him

Published On September 9, 2015 | By Keri | Entertainment News

One more reason to love Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Not only did he save his puppy from drowning, but he is taking the aftermath in stride.

Yesterday, Brutus the French Bulldog wasn’t feeling too well, perhaps from his pool adventure over the long weekend.

As Johnson puts it, Brutus was having “that awesome ’north/south’ action coming out of both ends of his body” so he packed up his pup and took him to the vet in the middle of the night.

“First I save this lil’ zombie Brutus’ life from drowning in the pool, now he decides to get all sick on me,” Johnson posted on his Instagram.

First I save this lil' zombie Brutus' life from drowning in the pool, now he decides to get all sick on me and having that awesome "north/south" action coming out of both ends of his body. Fun night. Thank you to the animal Dr's and nurses at St. Francis Emergency Animal Hospital for taking care of our gremlin. He'll be back in no time wrestling and biting the shit outta my hands and happily peeing on my Jordan's. #LetsGetYouHomeBigBoy #ThisPupsHadACrazy72Hrs #HesAlreadyTougherThanA2DollarSteak

As for the pool accident, 2 of the newest furriest members of the family made a mad dash for the deep end and Hobbs started dog paddling, but Brutus began to sink like a…you guessed it…rock.

A fully clothed Rock dove in after the little guy and rescued him.

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
