Inside Dallas Ebola Survivor Nina Pham's Touching Reunion With Bentley the Dog

Nina Pham's dog, Bentley, was quarantined 21 days for possible Ebola exposure.

"She's pretty excited," Dallas spokeswoman Sana Syed told ABC News. "We've been talking to her every day."

Pham is expected to reunite with Bentley Saturday morning, give a short statement and accept a gift basket filled with donations from people around the country, Syed said.

Bentley's quarantine won't be over until Nov. 1, so his veterinarians thought it best not to confuse Bentley with visits from Pham if he couldn't go home, Syed said. Caregivers feared if Bentley saw Pham and she left, he might become anxious or depressed, and have other health concerns.

"It's been a tough week for her, since she's been back and obviously wanted to see Bentley right away," Syed said, adding that Pham has maintained her distance.

Over the last three weeks, the King Charles cavalier spaniel has been cared for by a crew of veterinarians in isolation at Hensley Field in Dallas, she said.

"They played with him and hugged him, really just gave him that attention he needed during this time," Syed said. "They dedicated so much time caring for Bentley to make sure he got loved during this isolation period."

Who's a good boy?
