The Rock says of his 'Baywatch' movie co-star, 'Clearly he's one unattractive sumbitch.'

Over the holiday weekend, Dwayne Johnson had to act quickly to prevent to save the latest additions to his family, two baby French bulldogs.

The Rock shared the news on Instagram that he recently adopted two little puppies, Brutus and Hobbs.

In the photo, the Ballers star stands in his pool, fully-clothed with a smile on his face and a pup in each hand.

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

The caption explains that the photo was taken moments after Dwayne saved the little ones after they darted straight into the deep end of the pool.

Johnson writes, “HOBBS immediately starts doggy paddling while BRUTUS (like a brick) sink heads first to the bottom of the pool.”

Luckily for his new pets, the fast-acting action star proved that he’s just as much a hero off-screen as he is in his day job.
