The thing is flintlock from P2 wasn't a prop made for the movie, but rather serial made replica slightly repurposed for the movie. This one is supposed to be another replica from thesame series.

I'm happy and impressed they went with a Carolina dog (aka American dingo). But, from what I understand, modern Carolina dogs aren't quite the same as they were back in the 1700s since they've been cross-bred with European dogs. It's the closest they'll be able to get to a historically accurate dog breed, which, again, I'm very impressed by! But, do I have this right? Or am I missing something?

As you pointed out, as a dingo, Carolina Dogs are a natural dog - they aren't a breed in the typical sense, as they were naturally selected by evolution.  While obviously some Carolinas have bred with other breeds in the wild and captivity, the natural, untouched Carolinas still exist. Some still run wild in the swamps of the southeast.

It's not a surprise that they were able to have a Carolina Dog star in a movie without the lengthy training a typical movie dog has.  They are VERY smart dogs.

I had the pleasure of owning one for many years, quite by accident.  We always called her a "Florida Brown Dog", but years later I found out she was a Carolina Dog.  Reading about them is absolutely fascinating.  I hope they'll do a behind-the-scenes just about working with Coco.

Here's a side-by-side comparison of Coco, the dog from the Prey trailer, on the left and my dog Jazzy when she was a couple of years old:

Coco might as well be her reincarnation.  I'd say she's the real deal.

Thank you for this!! :-)
