Welcome! Nice to see yet another Iowan here. I live in the Des Moines area.

Yah, Renegade is aggressive to other ferrets in his house, especially males. He can be iffy with males in other people's houses, too. He can be human aggressive, as well, to adults. He has severe allergies, including an allergy to meat, and has no immune system to speak of, so really, I can kind of understand his grumpiness

I think my favourite foster to date was Wedgey, a 5 year 1/2 year old female that lived her life in a dark basement alone with no human interaction other than somebody putting food in her bowl. Sadly, being in the same room as my guys stressed her out and I passed her onto her awesome forever home a week later
My dogs didn't care much for the ferrets...but they really could be quite naughty with them, as sometimes the ferrets liked to nip feet and I believe I even had one that decided he'd make a great doggy nose ring. I was eventually able to dedicate a room just to the fuzzbutts and I think both were happier for it. lol

Poor Renegade, sounds like he has it rough...like any animal, or heck even people...health problems can make them more grumpy and change behaviors. He's lucky to have you, as most probably wouldn't hesitate to get rid of him.

That's really sad with Wedgey. Glad she got out of that situation. I had a ferret like that I got in as well...she would literally scream if another ferret even got close to her. She wasn't abused in her case, but just had never seen another ferret before...tried everything, but she was one of the extremely rare ones I had that absolutely would not accept a companion.
