Bummer and Lazarus were two stray dogs renowned for their ratting ability, close bond, and popularity with the populace of San Francisco in the 1860s. Bummer had allegedly saved Lazarus when he was being attacked by a much larger dog, then nursed him back to health. The two became “partners”, making rounds to beg for food and killing rats.

Along with Emperor Norton, Bummer and Lazarus were fixtures on the streets of San Francisco.
