    In the show, Lassie was a female dog. However, the dogs that were used to play the character were actually male. This is because male collies have a thicker summer coat and producers thought the coat would air better on the television screen. Also, male dogs tend to be bigger then females, so the child who played Timmy would be able to work with the dog for a longer period of time before outgrowing him.

    This old dog could use some new parts.

    Since he’s not the pick of the litter, he’ll have to be sold wholesale, he can’t be retailed.

    Timmy wasn’t the first boy… I forget the name of the original boy.

    Male collies are more colorful and hence photogenic. But for some reason the character of Lassie was female.

    Several years ago we were camping up in Lake Tahoe and met the owner of one of the Lassies. And yes the dog was male.

    Lads and lasses are old expressions for boys/men and girls/women, so Lassie is an affectionate name for a female dog. A male dog named Lassie makes me think of the song “A boy named Sue”…
