The 52-year-old Dune star shared an Instagram post last week that featured heartbreaking photos of the injured dog.    

'ATTN Tampa Bay: I will personally hand $5000 cash to the person who gives information leading to the arrest and conviction of the sick piece of sh*t responsible for this,' Dave wrote in the caption.
