DALLAS (AP) — Officials say the year-old King Charles Spaniel belonging to the Dallas nurse hospitalized with Ebola has been given comfortable bedding, toys and other items to entertain him while he stays at a decommissioned naval air base.

City spokeswoman Sana Syed said Tuesday that Bentley is staying in the former residence of the executive officer at the decommissioned Hensley Field, which is owned by the city. Bentley was moved Monday from nurse Nina Pham’s apartment to his new home, where he’ll be monitored.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings says city officials vowed to do everything in their power to care for Pham’s beloved pet.

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