A beagle mix that cheated death in an Alabama dog pound's gas chamber is up for adoption in New Jersey.

Volunteers began looking for a new home for "Daniel" after the dog walked out unscathed from the carbon monoxide administered by the Animal Control Department in Florence, Ala., on Oct. 3.

The Eleventh Hour Rescue group arranged to have the dog flown to New Jersey.

"Daniel's" tail started wagging as soon as he was taken off a plane at the Essex County Airport on Wednesday. The dog, which weighs about 20 pounds, is awaiting adoption at the nonprofit group's shelter in Rockaway.

Volunteer Roger Keyser told The Star-Ledger of Newark the dog "has got to have some destiny."
