"Cedric did this weird thing where he Transfigured a rock on the ground ... turned it into a dog ... he was trying to make the dragon go for the dog instead of him. Well, it was a pretty cool bit of Transfiguration and it sort of worked, because he did get the egg, but he got burned as well — the dragon changed its mind halfway through and decided it would rather have him than the Labrador; he only just got away."
Ron Weasley telling Harry Potter about Cedric Diggory's use of this spell during the first task of the Triwizard Tournament[src]

This was a transforming spell (incantation unknown) that would transform rocks into dogs.[1]

History

During the First Task of the Triwizard Tournament in 1994, Cedric used this spell on a rock in the arena. The spell transfigured the rock into a Labrador. However, the dragon decided midway through attacking the dog that she would rather have Cedric. Cedric was burned with dragon fire and was required to have Madam Pomfrey heal him afterwards in the Hogwarts Hospital Wing.[1]
