Can dogs become infected with Ebola?
Very little is known about how dogs or other animals respond to Ebola virus. Studies on dogs in West Africa have shown that dogs develop antibodies when exposed to Ebola, suggesting that they may develop mild infections without becoming sick.

Ebola is nearly always spread by direct human to human contact. Dogs and other domestic animals do not appear to be involved in the spread of Ebola virus in the current outbreak.
