NEWARK, N.J. — Things are coming up roses for a scrappy New Jersey beagle 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.

In 2011, Daniel emerged unscathed from a container that had been filled with carbon monoxide at an animal control facility in Florence, Ala. He has been living happily ever since with his adopted family in Nutley, N.J.

Daniel will 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.

Always good to hear of shelter animals rescued. I have a cat from our local shelter who's been neutered & now weighs 15#. He's 12 y/o. I got him when he was a kitten.
