Good points - dachshunds were found to be the most aggressive to other dogs and people in a study done at the University of Pa. They are not as resilient as breeds such as Golden Retrievers, Beagles are nice family dogs as well.

Nice dogs - too bad they are prone to some serious health problems. Havenese are another small breed I would recommend - durable and resilient, good tempered - but require professional grooming!
Chihuahuas are touchy - not a breed I would recommend for children. They are fragile and can be aggressive if not socialized and trained properly using positive reinforcement. A U of PA study found them to be one of the top breeds for aggression.

I agree Great Danes are great, just need the home for them. A friend had 2 of them (along with 4 kids) and I often dog sat. We had two incidents, a broken window from a happy wagging dog tail and a broken toilet from a very thirsty dog. Funny now.

Pugs make good family pets - I don't think dachshunds are the best choice, although dogs are individuals and if a dachshund is raised correctly, socialized properly and trained positively and supervised around children it may be ok.
