St Roque (also known as St Rock, St Roch and St Rocco) was a French nobleman who was known for tending to the sick and the poor. He was able to miraculously cure so very many, but, alas contracted the plague himself. Not wanting to infect anyone else, he set off to the forest to die.

He was befriended by a dog who stole scraps of food from the family table and fed them to St Rocco in the forest. He was able to recover with thanks to the dog, so his image generally shows a dog by his side. St Rocco was falsely accused for being spy and spent the rest of his life in jail. He was tended to by an angel while imprisoned.

He is best known as the beloved patron saint of dogs, falsely accused people and invalids.

St Rocco is also the patron of those who are sick with the plague, cholera and other such afflictions, as well as skin and knee problems.

This medal is made of modern pewter. It comes on an 18 inch stainless steel clasp necklace. The reverse of the medal is blank except for the company logo.

Your medal and necklace will arrive in a lovely velvet gift bag, ready to be given as a present to the special dog lover in your life.
