Saint Roch - St Flour de Mercoire - Chemin de Stevenson-2018-D4-8 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Saint Roch was a Catholic saint, a confessor. He is a patron saint of dogs, falsely accused people, bachelors, and several other things.

I assume that there is a linkage to shepherds here hence the statute to Saint Roch.
