Dwayne "The Rockfish" Johnson is the first pup of the season!
We rescue, rehabilitate and release more than 100 animals like Dwayne Johnson every year. You can support our mission and help us save lives by symbolically adopting Dwayne Johnson today with a small donation to the rescue centre.
Dwayne spends more time in the water than hauled out. He's gained a lot of weight and is looking fantastic. He'll probably be released soon...
Dwayne has been moved to a pre-release pool. He is eating well on his own, and diving for fish thrown into the pool.
Dwayne is very curious and alert, doing well during his tube-feeds and enjoying his baths. He's also beginning to lose his lanugo, the soft hair still covering most of his body.
