    All the Lassies were actually male dogs because female collies tend to "blow coat" (go through a massive hormone-induced shedding process) with each heat cycle.

By the time that spaying, which would reduce the dramatic shedding of the female, became commonplace, it had become tradition to use a male in the role.
