It’s a happy ending that wasn’t supposed to happen for a big eared, doe-eyed beagle.
Now, the dog that was found as a stray in Alabama and defied death, is searching for a new home.
Three weeks ago, the beagle was euthanized along with 18 otherdogs at an overcrowded animal shelter in Florence, Ala., on Oct. 3.
But to the shock of everyone he somehow survived.
When the animal control officer in charge of the operation returned to the locked chamber he found the dog waiting at the door, wagging its tail. The other dogs were dead.
His amazing survival has attracted several charitable groups to come to his aid to make sure he isn’t sent back into the gas chamber. He found a temporary home in Tennessee with Karen Rudolph, who runs Schnauzer Savers Rescue of West Tennessee with her husband Michael.

This dog is such a legend. All the other dogs are sniffing gas and he just holds his breath and waits until the doors open up, then wags his tail. This is the kind of dog who will rescue his owners from a burning building, or bite a prowler or something like that. He needs to go to a good home now. Or, even better, put out to stud.
