Multi-talented wrestler and actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson added “real life superhero” to his resume after he saved his drowning puppy over the weekend.

The Rock posted a picture and status on Facebook explaining the story behind his courageous rescue. Apparently, Johnson had just come home with two brand-new baby French Bulldogs and released them into his backyard when one plunged head-first into the pool and then sank to the bottom.

“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.”

Johnson also says he learned some valuable lessons that day. You can see them in his Facebook post below.
