It's tied to the gender of whatever you possess:

a house = ett hus
my house = mitt hus

a dog = en hund
my dog = min hund

and also:

flowers = blommor
my flowers = mina blommor

Incidentally, this is the same rule for sitt sin and sina, for vilket vilken and vilka, for inget ingen and inga, and so on.

Mitt is used for ett words while min is used for en words. Hope this helped!

As a native speaker, I do not think there is any rule whether to use "Mitt" or "Min," apart from how they relate to "Ett," "En," etc. That is also, I would say, the most common mistake foreigners make, saying "Min hus" and so on. Everyone would understand you regardless, but you get bonus points, bonuspoäng, if you get it right :)
