Could this phrase not be understood as "The black dogs" as well?
Or would that be expressed differently?
You would not use the verb 'हैं' in that case which is equivalent to 'are'. Also, just like in English, attributive adjectives come before the noun they modify.
So, 'काले कुत्ते'='the black dogs'.
