** FILE ** In this Oct. 28, 2011, file photo, Daniel, who is better known as the "Miracle Dog", waits for a treat in the home of Mark and Jill Pavlik in Rochelle Park, N.J., where he was being fostered upon his arrival in the state. The stray beagle mix, who walked out unscathed from the carbon monoxide administered by the Animal Control Department in Florence, Ala., will be among eight shelter dogs riding on a float in the Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif., on New Year's Day.
