Take a screenshot of the lasso tool while it is in operation! You could just do it on gray background...like this...
1. Create lasso
2. Print Screen (copies to clipboard)
3. Create a new document in photoshop and paste the contents of the clipboard in it.
5. Crop and save as JPEG
Is that what you meant?

If u want to have the exact same effect as a LASSO tool then I agree with jason , but if u want to have dotted line u can do this :
1.draw your lines with the pen tool (press P)
2. choose Brush tool , select a square brush ,open the brushes palette (on the top right corner u can see the icon)
3.select brush tip shape on the left , and set the brush spacing to 200%
4.set the diameter as u like , and the color of the brush
5.on the menus go to WINDOW---->paths (to open paths window) maybe its open already
6.on the bottom of that window click on the circle which says "stoke path with brush"
u can now delete the path
was it helpful?

Tricky.
I'd try like this.
Take a few of screen shots, like I the one I did above. Hopefully you will capture the dotted line in different stages of the animation. You could then arrange these frames in order in layers in Photoshop, to produce the animation sequence. Then you save it as a GIF file. Then you will have an animated GIF.
