Could this (without the period) not also be “my weird dog” ?

Nope, that'd be كلبي الغريب, with a definite article. Adjectives describing definite nouns receive the definite article as well, and "my dog" is definite, even though it doesn't have a definite article, because anything possessed by something definite is itself definite per Arabic grammar. And pronouns are always considered definite in Arabic. "My dog" is a specific dog.
