Finally, some good news to report about Ebola.
Ebola patient Nina Pham’s dog, Bentley, has tested negative for the virus.
The news came via the Dallas Emergency Services and Adoption Center’s Facebook page.
Canines can be asymptomatic, meaning they can carry the virus, but show no symptoms.
The pooch got the OK from a Texas A&M veterinarian team that cleared him.
That same team reported that Bentley’s spirits were high and the staff has “fallen in love with him.”
Bentley isn’t the first dog to have a brush with Ebola. A dog belonging to a nurse in Spain who contracted Ebola had to be put down, despite the nearly 365,000 signatures on a petition to let the dog live.
Pham is in recovery at the National Institutes of Health and her condition has been upgraded to ‘good.’
Pham is one of two nurses who’ve contracted Ebola while treating Eric Thomas Duncan, who died last month. The other, Amber Vinson, no longer has the virus.
