Saint Roch c. 1295 – 16 August 1327 - Saint Roch miraculously healed many of the bubonic plague victims for whom he was caring while they were ill, people reported.

After Roch contracted the deadly disease himself, he miraculously recovered through the loving care of a dog who helped him. The dog licked Roch's wounds often (each time, they healed more) and brought him food until he fully recovered. Because of this, Roch now serves as one of the patron saints of dogs
