man pg_dump seems to say it is not possible

       -t table

              Dump  data for table only. It is possible for there to be multi-
              ple tables with the same name in different schemas; if  that  is
              the  case,  all  matching  tables  will  be dumped. Specify both
              --schema and --table to select just one table.

              Note: In this mode, pg_dump makes no attempt to dump  any  other
              database objects that the selected table may depend upon. There-
              fore, there is no guarantee that the results of  a  single-table
              dump  can  be  successfully  restored by themselves into a clean
