Law Students: Feeling Stressed By Exams? Therapy Dogs are Ready to Provide a Sympathetic Presence


Law students stressing out as finals loom at the University of San Francisco may need a furry friend, officials there have decided.

So certified therapy dogs will be on hand to lend a sympathetic presence, provided by the local chapter of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, reports the Culture Feed page of the Bay Citizen.

Students can check out canines including Monk, a St. Bernard; Daphne, a black Labrador; and Sophie Loren, described as a sweetheart of a pit bull and Weimaraner mix.
