Cody, a collie dog belonging to a family in the Maghaberry area of Co Antrim, suffered horrific burns and eventually had to be put to sleep.
The attack, which happened in August last year, caused shock in the local community and beyond.
Ireland international rugby star Stephen Ferris was among those who urged anyone with information to come forward, while animal rights group PETA offered a reward of £1,000.
A Justice For Cody campaign was launched and a rally was held at Stormont.
On Tuesday, the police officer leading the investigation posted on PSNI Lisburn's Facebook page to update members of the public who have been following the developments.
"The investigation is nearly complete as all the relevant enquiries have been carried out and the findings will be submitted to the PPS for decision in the very near future," the post read.
"Moira Neighbourhood Policing team would like to take this opportunity to thank all those members of the public who came forward during this investigation and provided police with useful information."
Two 21-year-old men have previously been arrested and bailed in connection with Cody's attack, but no charges have yet been brought against anyone.
Cody's owners, the Agnew family, have since adopted a new rescue pup and donated thousands of pounds - originally raised to help them pay Cody's vet bills - to animal welfare charities.
