A Wayzata husband and wife team scored a massive investment on "Shark Tank" this Sunday when billionaire Mark Cuban agreed to invest $250,000 in the company. 

Scott and Gina Davis run Dog Threads, a clothing company that makes matching outfits for dogs and their families. 

According to CNBC, the duo was seeking $250,000 for a 17 percent stake in their company. 

Cuban met their offer but asked for a 30 percent stake. 

The couple ultimately talked him down to 25 percent stake, saying they needed as much as possible to provide for their 1-year-old son's future. 

Dog Threads isn't all about matching outfits, although you have to check out their adorable doggy Hawaiian shirts, flannels, and sweaters.

The company donates a portion of every sale to various non-profit animal rescues to help dogs find forever homes.
