Authorities are hopeful Bentley will not show signs of the disease and be released in 21 days.

But Bentley is still in quarantine.
Officials said Bentley’s quarantine period should end in another week.
Dallas News reported:

Since being declared free of Ebola, Nina Pham said she wants to hold her dog, Bentley.

But Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said there is no dog reunion scheduled for Saturday.

A day earlier, he had said the two likely would see each other Saturday.

Pham and her dog have been separated for more than two weeks, after Pham was put into isolation Oct. 10 at Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas.

The 1-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is being monitored for a 21-day period at Hensley Field Services Center in Grand Prairie while Dallas Animal Services checks his urine and stool samples for the deadly disease his owner contracted while treating Thomas Eric Duncan.

So far, the dog shows no signs of the disease, Jenkins said. His quarantine period should end around Nov. 1.
