Dog lovers worldwide got good news Wednesday when Dallas nurse Nina Pham's King Charles spaniel was pronounced free of the Ebola virus that infected his owner, according to the Associated Press.
The city of Dallas said 1-year-old Bentley will be tested again before his 21-day quarantine period ends Nov. 1.
Bentley was quarantined after his owner, Pham, was diagnosed with Ebola. She was the first of two Texas nurses infected after treating Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan at Texas Heath Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. Pham is being treated at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, Md., where her condition was upgraded to good Tuesday.
