With proper socialization they should be brave little guys. If a puppy is born scared, it could be genetic. Even a sweet natured puppy can become scared if something traumatic happens, like a box falls off the counter on it, or another dog attacks it. Most smooth coat Dachshunds are genetically tuff, however there can be necrotic ones also. Its nice to see or hear about the parents temperament before you pick a puppy.
