Dwayne Johnson, actor and former WWF star, jumped into a pool fully clothed and saved two drowning puppies over Labor Day weekend.
Johnson, AKA "The Rock," posted a picture of him and the pups to Instagram, explaining the story.
"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," he captioned the picture.
"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 apparently tried to dog paddle and swim back to safety, however Johnson reported that Brutus sunk, head 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 explained. "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."
Johnson, star of the movie "San Andreas" and HBO's "Ballers," reported that the incident taught him a few lessons.
"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," he wrote.
As Access Hollywood reported, Johnson will star in a "Baywatch"
adaptation with Zac Efron next year.
