Motorworks Brewing in Manatee County Florida has been doing this fun thing where they put adoptable dogs on their beer cans in hopes of them finding new families.

Minnesota woman Monica Mathis saw this story make it's rounds on the internet, and as she read the story she thought that one of the dogs on the cans, Day Day, looked a lot like one she had lost. A member of her family she says went missing from their Iowa home in 2017. After looking for her and calling numerous shelters, her beloved dog was no where to be found. Eventually Monica moved back to Minnesota.

After recognizing the pet on the beer can, Monica called Manatee County Animal Services right away. They scanned Day Day for a microchip and found Monica's first name, but her last name and information had changed over three years. Monica provided paper work to them that proved Day Day was actually Hazel, and in fact her dog.

No one is quite sure how Hazel got from Iowa to Florida, but what we do know is that Hazel gets to reunite with her human, all thanks to a beer can.

Manatee County Animal Services is working to get Hazel back to Minnesota and home with Monica sometime next week.
