In the TV show Lassie was the character Timmy supposed to be an adopted child?

Maybe he was. For some reason Dad and Lad ( human) did not seem to be an ideal Father and Son Team- like Swift or Hardy Bros. Dad was somewhat distant and remote. Big Mom got all the dialogue and action shots. I often wondered why the old man was such a remote character. I never recall his name even- the Mother was Ruth Martin (show name) acted by June Lockhart- I don:t even recall the dad"s first name. There were other adult characters such as the farmer Mr. Cully- but no juvenile pals or side-kicks, at least on regular basis. One, no several flaws of the Lassie show.
