Dallas Nurse Who Survived Ebola to Get Dog Back

Posted:
DALLAS (AP) - A Dallas nurse who recovered from Ebola will soon be reunited with her dog, which has been sequestered since his owner became ill.
   
The King Charles Cavalier spaniel named Bentley is in quarantine at an abandoned Navy base in Dallas.
   
His owner, Nina Pham, was diagnosed with Ebola earlier this month. She contracted the virus while caring for a Liberian man, Thomas Eric Duncan, who died Oct. 8.
   
City spokeswoman Sana Syed said Thursday that the dog has tested negative for Ebola and that his 21-day quarantine - the Ebola incubation period - ends Saturday.
   
Pham was released from her own quarantine Oct. 24.
   
Syed says Pham won't visit the dog sooner because he may become anxious if he sees her but is then left behind in isolation.
