A shelter volunteer made Stark's first outfit, fitting some firm material over his chest. Stark doesn't seem to mind it at all. Plans are in the works to make custom-molded jackets for him.
Stark isn't out of danger yet. He's got specialists to visit, and treatments to endure, and even with his special armor his carers don't yet know if he'll make it.
But for now he's happy and spunky, and loved. You can see it, that this tiny superhero wants to be here for more of the action.
"How many people can say that they can see the love of their pet?" says Deacon. "With Stark, every visible heartbeat is the fight to live."
