"In canis corpore transmuto" - In the Disney movie The Shaggy Dog (1959), Tommy Kirk starred as a young man named Wilby Daniels who inadvertently transformed himself into a shaggy dog when he read the magical Borgia spell "In Canis Corpore Transmuto." Translated from the Latin the phrase said: "Into a dog's body I change."

The movie was based on the story "The Hound of Florence" written by Felix Salten about a magic ring that changed a small boy into a dog.

The phrase was also used in the sequel theatrical movie The Shaggy D.A. (1976) and the made-for-TV movie The Return of the Shaggy Dog (1989).
