(CNN)A shelter dog featured on a Florida brewery's beer can has been reunited with the family that's been missing her since she disappeared three years ago in Iowa.
Dog featured on Florida beer cans is reunited with her family in Minnesota after a cross-country road trip
Nobody knows how Hazel got to Florida, but the super-affectionate 7-year-old had been at the Manatee County Animal Services shelter in Palmetto, Florida, since last March.
They called her Day Day at the shelter, and she was one of four dogs chosen to have their pictures featured on special cans of Motorworks Brewing beer in hopes that they would be adopted.
The marketing campaign went viral, and Monica Mathis recognized her good girl when she saw the story on social media.
"I was looking at the dogs and I was like oh my gosh, that's Hazel," Mathis told CNN affiliate Bay News 9.
Hazel had gotten away when the family lived in Iowa, she said.
"She was an escape artist; she was very good at getting loose. Bolting right through the door. Knocking me over just to get out the door," she told CNN affiliate WWSB.
Hazel had a microchip, but the information was outdated, so the shelter couldn't find her owners, who had moved from Iowa to St. Paul, Minnesota, according to Hans Wohlgefa
