    For (1) Amy's puppy, Lucky, was lost. The name of the puppy would be set off in commas following the word 'puppy'.

    Same thing for (3) She decided to put up a notice for her lost dog, Lucky, on the bulletin board in her neighborhood.

    But, since you have already talked about the puppy you could just say:

    She decided to put up a notice for Lucky on the bulletin board in her neighborhood.

    Also, I changed the sentence to 'in her neighborhood'. It looks like there is just one bulletin board nearby, so say 'in'.

    If there are several bulletin boards, you could say:

    She decided to put up notices for Lucky on the bulletin boards around her neighborhood.

    (4) She hoped that someone would find her Lucky and return it to her. Both main verbs should be in the base form, going with "would'. Would find and return.

    So, did anyone ever find Lucky? With a name like Lucky, I would think so!
