Dwayne Johnson (a.k.a. The Rock) has now earned the bona fide title of superhero, after having played the part in various movies over the years.

Over Labor Day weekend, the muscular actor welcomed 2 puppies into his home — French Bulldogs named Brutus and Hobbs.

Thinking they would enjoy exploring their new surroundings a bit, Johnson took them outside. And enjoy, they did, as they took off running as soon as their little paws touched the ground.

In an instant, though, they had fallen into the deep end of the family’s swimming pool. One of the dogs, Brutus, sank to the bottom “like a brick,” Johnson says.

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.”

The Rock came through, diving right into 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 told his followers on Instagram.

He does have some advice for all you future rescuers out there: “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.”

Johnson hashtagged his post: #BRUTUSLives #HOBBSCanSwim #MyCelPhonesDead #AndNoMouthToMouthNeeded #HappyLaborDay.
