The Rock Saved His Adorable French Bulldog Puppies From Drowning

1 minute read

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a hero. Not only did the action star save the lives of his new French bulldog puppies, but he also saved the day from post-long weekend ennui thanks to the photo he posted of himself, soaking wet, holding two puppies.

The pro-wrestler turned actor posted a cautionary tale on Instagram involving his two new French bulldog puppies, Brutus and Hobbs, a swimming pool and his cell phone. The Ballers star brought his new puppies home over the weekend and when he tried to introduce them to the great outdoors, they made a beeline for his swimming pool. Since Frenchies are not known for their flotation skills, being quite top-heavy, one of the pups swam, while the other immediately sank to the bottom of the pool. Johnson dove into the water to save the tiny dog, but in his haste to be a real life action hero, he forgot to take his cellphone out of his pocket. At least phones are replaceable.
