Miracle Dog Who Survived Gas Chamber To Take Part In Rose Parade

Stream Fox 17 newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5 am and News at 9 pm.


FOX News--"Daniel the Miracle Dog" will be headed to California's Rose Parade on New Year's Day. 


The beagle mix is one of just three dogs believed to have survived an Alabama Animal Control carbon monoxide chamber. The gas chamber is a stainless-steel box roughly the size of a pickup truck bed, and dogs are put into the chamber about seven or eight at a time. A computer-controlled pump slowly feeds carbon monoxide into the chamber once it's sealed, and an operator presses a button. Daniel, then just 6 months old, was scheduled to be euthanized in the chamber during October of 2011, but he emerged unscathed.

 
Workers at the facility chose to name the dog "Daniel" after the biblical figure who survived the lion's den. After being flooded with adoption requests, Daniel finally found a home with a New Jersey man, where he has lived since. 


Daniel will perform tricks with other animal shelter survivors on a parade float sponsored by the Lucy Pet Foundation.
