    The test results are in and Ebola patient Nina Pham's dog, Bentley, has tested negative for the virus.

    The City of Dallas posted a YouTube video featuring an interview with one of the vets caring for Pham's dog and video of Bentley playing with a new toy fox.

    A team of specially-trained veterinarians started testing the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel for the virus Monday, sending samples from his waste to a lab.

    Dallas Animal Services has been caring for Bentley in isolation. To date, he has been healthy and still shows no symptoms of the virus.

    The City of Dallas tweeted new pictures Wednesday and said they'll run one more test before the end of a 21-day quarantine period. Bentley will remain in isolation until Nov. 1.

    Pham is one of two nurses who fell ill with the potentially deadly virus after caring for Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan at a Dallas hospital.

    National Institutes of Health in Maryland announced she is Ebola-free and will be discharged from NIH Friday.

    In response to the outpouring of support around the world for Bentley, the city of Dallas partnered with Dallas Companion Animal Project to establish the Dallas Pet Emergency Transition Services (PETS) fund. The donations will help Bentley and other pets in similar emergency situations in the future.
