Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Saint Roch was born in 1295 at Montpelier, France into a noble family. At the age of twenty he gave away his considerable fortune to become a pilgrim. He devoted his whole life to the service of those who fell victims to the plague; consequently his intercession is invoked in times of pestilence. St. Roch was himself stricken by the plague and banished. Alone in the forest he was fed every day by a dog bringing him bread.
He is the patron Saint of dogs, and guards against Plague and Pestilence
