Product Description

  • St. Roch medal
  • Unique artisan design
  • Patron of dogs & dog lovers
  • Comes with saint card
  • Handmade pewter


This unique St. Roch medal  was hand carved and cast in lead-free pewter by an American artisan. St. Roch is the patron of dogs and dog lovers. As a young man St. Roch (b. 1295) walked from France to Rome to help plague victims. In Rome, he caught the plague. He went into a forest to prepare himself for death. As he was praying, a dog came to him, a piece of bread in its mouth. Roch took the bread. The dog licked the plague wounds on Roch's leg, and they were healed. Roch ate the bread, and, brought back to wholeness by the dog’s gifts, he and the dog returned to Rome, where they comforted the sick. The story shows both the bond between humans and dogs and the power of each to heal the other.  The halo around the dog’s head is a testament to the fact that it was the dog who saved the saint.   Pet Medals are a great gift idea for any special pet.  This medal is made of soft pewter and engravable, however, it is not a substitute for permanent pet identification in the event your pet gets lost.  This medal comes with a small saint card, making this great to give as a gift.
