Daniel the Miracle Dog Going to the Rose Parade

Things are coming up roses for a scrappy beagle from New Jersey who survived a dog pound gas chamber.

Daniel will be among eight shelter dogs riding on a float in the Rose Parade on New Year’s Day in Pasadena, Calif.

Daniel was 6 months old when he was slated to be euthanized in 2011 at an animal control facility in Florence, Ala.

He surprised workers by emerging unscathed from a container that had been filled with carbon monoxide.

Daniel has been living happily ever since with his adopted family in Nutley.

He’ll perform tricks with other animal shelter survivors on a parade float sponsored by the Lucy Pet Foundation, which runs a mobile spay and neuter clinic.

Daniel’s story prompted laws in 31 states that protect shelter animals against inhumane forms of euthanasia.
