Everything is coming up roses for Daniel, a beagle who survived a dog pound gas chamber in Alabama two years ago.

The 2-year-old pooch, now living in New Jersey, will be among eight shelter dogs riding on a float in the Rose Parade on New Year's Day in Pasadena, Calif., according to The Associated Press.

Daniel was just 6 months old when he was scheduled to be put down at an animal control facility in Florence, Ala.

He and 17 other dogs were put in a stainless steel box filled with carbon monoxide.

Workers were shocked when Daniel emerged unscathed, and named him after the biblical figure who survived a lion's den.

Adopted by a family in New Jersey, Daniel will perform his "high five to keep pets alive" trick with other shelters dogs on the Rose Parade float sponsored by the Lucy Pet Foundation, the AP reported.
