Milwaukee's favorite shirtless, street-strutting superhero of sorts, The Milverine, has a new dog.
While waiting in line in her car to donate clothing to Bay View's Goodwill, television personality Jessica Tighe spotted the Milverine – aka John Hamann – walking with a small, furry, four-legged friend.
"I put the car in reverse and drove to the road ... to meet him," says Tighe. "It was fun to meet our local legend, but more so I was happy to see him with a new pup!"
The Milverine was spotted with a dog in the past, but that one belonged to a family member and, sadly, passed away last year.
Tighe learned the dog's name is "Princess," she's 13-weeks old and came from a local breeder.
"She was adorable and super sweet," says Tighe.
What’s even better than spotting a local legend?
Meeting his new dog!
