THE Daily News Pet of the Week is Sarge, an 11-year-old pointer/pitbull mix at the Pennsylvania SPCA.

Sarge (right) is easy on the leash when he's walking, but he gets a little excited around other dogs. He will need continuous pain medication and joint supplements, and would do best with an experienced dog-owner who wants to give an old dog a good life.

For information about Sarge, call the PSPCA at 215-426-6300; stop by the shelter on Erie Avenue near B Street, in North Philadelphia; or visit
