Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson has a little public service announcement for you. Johnson let his two new French bulldog puppies loose in the yard for the first time, and they both immediately jumped in the pool, reports USA Today.
One puppy, Hobbs, dog paddled. The other, Brutus, sank “like a brick.” Johnson dove into the pool fully clothed and fished out the little fellow, who is totally fine.
In an Instagram post about the close call, Johnson wrote, “Some puppies (like BRUTUS) will be so in shock by experiencing water they will sink extremely fast, so react quick.”
The “San Andreas” star also ruefully recommends that any pool-diving puppy rescuers take a moment to toss their phones to safety before diving in fully clothed. “Don’t keep it in your pocket … like I did,” he wrote.
