Dachshunds range from being really hyper to very calm. I know both kinds. They'll bark at pretty much anything and occasionally chase the cats but we've never had serious issues with that.

They are susceptible to back problems, especially if they become overweight. This is of course due to the length of their spines. Invertebrate Disc Disease seems to be the biggest issue they have and corrective surgery can be expensive.
