Hero Dwayne Johnson Saves Puppy Brutus From Drowning


Dwayne Johnson has had quite an exciting puppy Labor Day weekend. He adopted two French bulldog puppies named then Hobbs and Brutus and then had to rescue one of them from drowning.

The very moment he let their paws touch the ground in his backyard, they bolted off for the deep end of the pool. Hobbs found his sea legs immediately, paddling like a pro. Brutus, not so much. In the words of Dwayne himself, he sank “like a brick”. Head first.

Dwayne jumped in the pool, dove and got the little guy out. Brutus threw up the water he ingested while sinking and ran off to enjoy the rest of the afternoon with his bro. This makes us look forward to Dwayne’s upcoming Baywatch movie even more than before.

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
