Include the (approximate) location the pet was lost or last seen.
Include a complete and detailed description of your pet (especially any identifying features or marks - like a collar, tag, unique coloration, etc).
Attach a photo of your pet, if you are able.
A descriptive title is the best kind of title!
Try something like "Black and brown, medium sized dog lost around LOCATION X" instead of "Dog lost"
