ROCKAWAY, N.J. (AP) -- A stray beagle mix that cheated death in an Alabama dog pound's gas chamber is up for adoption in New Jersey.

Volunteers began looking for a new home for the dog known as Daniel after the animal walked out unscathed from the carbon monoxide administered by the Animal Control Department in Florence, Ala., on Oct. 3.

The Eleventh Hour Rescue group arranged to have the dog flown to New Jersey.

The dog is awaiting adoption at the nonprofit group's shelter in Rockaway.

Volunteer Roger Keyser told The Star-Ledger of Newark (http://bit.ly/v6VMjG ) the dog "has got to have some destiny."

Florence city spokesman Phil Stevenson says no one is sure why Daniel survived. He says three animals have survived the gas chamber over the past 12 years or so.
