A dog that was said to have one month to live was saved by a group of veterinarians in nearby Madison, Wisconsin.

Now that dog's owner, David MacNeil, CEO of WeatherTech shelled out $6 million for a 30 second Super Bowl ad thanking the vets that saved his dog's life.

McNeil's miracle pup, Scout, stars in the ad, but how he got there seems nearly unbelievable.

The dog had a one percent chance of survival, but doctors at the veterinary school treated Scout with aggressive chemotherapy and radiation that nearly eradicated his tumor.

The group that saved Scout's life, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the School of Veterinary Medicine will have a massive spotlight shone on the great work they have accomplished in front of a massive audience thanks to the TV spot.

Mary Markel, Dean of UW-Madison's School of Veterinary Medicine tells NBC 15, "We're thrilled to share with Super Bowl viewers how our profession benefits beloved animals like Scout and helps people, too."

You can catch the ad during the second quarter of the Super Bowl on Fox or you can watch it now.
