FAIRBORN, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - Finals week means heavy workloads and high stress, but Wright State University students took a break from studying for a little Fuzz Therapy Tuesday.

Seven goldendoodle puppies helped students unwind and forget about their studies for a little while.

Freshman finance major Ashley Buchhlotz was one of the almost 200 students who waiting in line to see the 7-week-old puppies, and she said the event was just the break she needed.

"I love it because I am so stressed out," she said. "It's so nice. I love puppies, too, so it's so nice."

The puppies, who are all named after different types of airplanes, were brought onto campus by 4 Paws for Ability at WSU, which has been on campus since 2011. Chapter President Desirae Vance said students give the event, which happens every semester, rave reviews.

"Everyone loves the dogs," she said. "And these guys, since they're goldendoodles, they're pretty fluffy. But everyone loves that they're here and they're having a great time."

4 Paws for Ability will train the puppies to be service dogs after they get through the socialization stage of life. However, puppies that don't make it through the training are available for adoption. You can check out more about the organization on this website.
