Hundreds of People Look to Adopt 'Miracle Dog' Who Survived Alabama Gas Chamber

Daniel, who is better known as the "Miracle Dog", sits still while waiting for a treat in the home of Mark and Jill Pavlik in Rochelle Park, N.J. The stray beagle mix, who cheated death in an Alabama dog pound's gas chamber, is being fostered by the Pavlik's while a permanent home is found for him.

(FoxNews.com) -
Hundreds of people from around the country are looking to adopt a young stray dog who cheated death inside an Alabama gas chamber.

Daniel, a beagle mix who is better known as the "Miracle Dog," was left anonymously in a drop box outside an Alabama pound. His life was supposed to end Oct. 3 in a carbon monoxide chamber at the Animal Control facility in Florence, Ala., but he emerged unscathed.

Workers at the facility chose to name the dog "Daniel" after the biblical figure who survived the lion's den. The 4-year-old pooch was then flown to New Jersey, where he remains in the temporary custody of Jill Pavlik, a volunteer with the nonprofit Eleventh Hour Rescue group.
