Daniel Survives Gas Chamber, Now Has New Family

NUTLEY — He may not have nine lives, but he’s certainly enjoying his second.

From an unwanted stray thrown into an Alabama pound’s gas chamber, Daniel, the miracle beagle, has risen to stardom. He’s been on television. He’s had a proposed law named for him. And, most importantly, he’s found a permanent home and family that “loves him.”

“We can’t deny he has a purpose,” said Joe Dwyer of Nutley who, with his wife, Geralynn and daughter, Jenna, adopted Daniel last week. The dog will be used to fight for laws outlawing gas chambers, and he’ll become a poster child for pet adoptions. But those aren’t Daniel’s top priorities.

“He won’t be exploited,” Dwyer, a 50-year-old motivational speaker and dog trainer, said at his home Tuesday. “His life as a part of this family is paramount.”

And what a good life it’s shaping up to be. Daniel has four new friends: the Dwyers’ other dogs, all rescues of various breeds.
