A dog that was paid for with a pair of trainers has celebrated her first birthday.

Connor McBride, who was selling the shoes, had gone viral a year ago following him posting a screenshot of a conversation from a prospective buyer who wanted a rather unconventional method of payment.

He was hoping to get $300 (£215) for the sneakers but someone replied wondering if he could them in exchange for a female German Shepard puppy.

While some might think it was a scam, Connor actually went and met up with him to discover that he was indeed being serious about paying via puppy.

Tweeting “I think I won this trade” along with the print screen of the chat and proof that it was indeed a little dog, proving that he did indeed win, a post that has racked up over 618,000 likes, 88,000 retweets and nearly 2,000 replies.
