In Prey, the loyal Sariah is a very good girl (to use Internet parlance). She obeys commands, distracts bears, brings weapons and contributes to the fight against extraterrestrial threats. However, in our interview, Amber Midthunder went into detail that Koko, the performer puppy, doesn’t always look like her character. Working with Koko was “chaotic” because she was not an experienced movie dog. Midthunder explained, “She was so energetic and they didn’t train her like a movie dog. She was literally adopted for this movie.”

The reason they removed an unknown dog from the movie? Accuracy. “They found that she was the most accurate for the region and time period,” Midthunder said, “so they took her in and trained her specifically for this movie.” It’s great that Coco was accepted for the film and given a successful new career as a movie dog – and that a budding puppy with movie star dreams can still make it in the movie industry.

But Coco’s lack of experience proved to be a problem. Midthunder shared, “Everything you see came out beautiful… but I can tell you, the days with her weren’t like that.” She clarified that her days with Koko were indeed “very fun and I love her, she’s so sweet”, but despite being a well-behaved puppy, Saria and Koko are “two very different dogs”.

While it’s a little disappointing to learn that our new favorite movie dog has been a bit difficult to work with, hopefully this newfound star can give her more time with a trainer. However, a good adoption story is touching, and it’s another great example of the film’s commitment to accuracy, choosing a breed for its veracity in real Comanche history, rather than just using another breed.

“Prey” is available to watch on Hulu.
