14 October 2014, 07:55

Dallas - Officials say a year-old King Charles Spaniel has been taken from the Dallas apartment of an Ebola-infected nurse and will be cared for at an undisclosed location.

Nurse Nina Pham's apartment is being thoroughly cleaned after tests over the weekend confirmed she is infected.

Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said on Tuesday evening that the dog would be cared for in "undisclosed location in a humane, caring way."

City spokesperson Sana Syed says the dog named Bentley will be comfortable and have toys to play with while he is monitored away from people.

There was an uproar in Spain after Madrid authorities euthanised a dog belonging to a nursing assistant sickened by the virus. Authorities were concerned the dog might be harbouring the virus.
