St. John Bosco. During his life a huge grey dog would often appear and protect him from violent men.
St. Cuthbert. While he stood in the water during a nightly vigil, otters came to warm his feet.
St. Roche. He nearly died until a dog brought him food every day and licked his wounds.
St. Ciaran. A boar helped Ciaran build his hermitage and many other animals came to live by him.
St. Benedict. Benedict asked a raven to take a poisoned loaf away and to dispose of it safely.
