They told us she was a Labrador/Dachshund mix that would grow to be about 35 pounds. At 3 years old, she now tops in at a mere 15 pounds so we're sure she's not a lab. We've been researching and we now think Patterdale Terrier/Dachshund...are we right? Not only does she look the part but she has endless amounts of energy and needs to chase anything that moves. She also has a teeny tiny patch of white hair on her chest.
Let us know what you think!

for what it's worth at this late date, I'd say DEFINITELY a patterdale/daschhund cross. We have one, her name is J-Lo, she's a total diva and looks like the twin sister of yours.
