    (2006- )
    Born in Florence, Alabama
    Beagle hailed as a 'miracle dog'
    Named after the biblical character Daniel who survived housing in a lion's den
    Left anonymously in a drop box outside an Alabama pound and scheduled for euthanasia
    Put in a gas chamber with 18 other dogs (October 3, 2011)
    Emerged from the gas chamber alive and unscathed
    Put in care of the Eleventh Hour Rescue group in New Jersey for adoption
    He was in the Alabama shelter for weeks as a potential adoptee, but nobody wanted him, which was why he was gassed.
    While there are varying theories about why he didn't die, the fact remains that the other 18 dogs with him did.
    Hundreds of offers to adopt him have been made, but many folks weren't interested in adopting any other dog than him, raising concerns about people wanting him just as a celebrity symbol.
    At 20 pounds, he is underweight and has a slightly compromised immune system, but suffered no ill effects from the gassing.
    Lethal injection is considered a more humane way to euthanize animals, but Alabama law that switched methods didn't take effect until the end of 2011.
    He is in rare company - the shelter stated Daniel was only the third dog that survived gassing in the last 12 years.
    The operator could have simply tried again, but said, 'It was almost as though angels pulled him out of there and he didn't even breathe the gas,' tugging on his heartstrings and thus giving him a new chance at life.
    Eleventh Hour Rescue group has been able to use his celeb status to further educate folks that adopting companion animals is a rewarding experience that could put a dent in current overcrowded conditions.
