I found a dachshund website that warns about this trait in the breed. Here's an excerpt on some of the negative traits of dachshunds:
They are hunters and they may kill other animals in your yard, including birds, squirrels, raccoons, possums, chipmunks, and rabbits. If you're squeamish about real-life natural events, don't get a dachshund or be prepared to always walk your dog on a leash. My wife always rattles the back door before letting the dogs out to give the wild-life a fighting chance of escape. Never let your rabies vaccination lapse as these encounters could result in some severe consequences. Dachshunds are friendly to adults and children that have manners, other dachshunds, even a few other dogs and maybe the family cat, but everything else is prey.
Stubbornness almost to a fault
Clever definitely to a fault, lively and courageous.
