    "mein" means "my" for masculine and neuter singular nouns in the nominative case. e.g; "Hier ist mein Hund" ("Here is my dog.")

    "meine" means "my" for feminine and plural nouns in the nominative and accusative cases, and also means "mine". e.g; "Wo ist meine Katze?" ("Where is my cat?") AND "Das Vogel ist meine." ("That bird is mine.").

    -by the way "Deutsch" (always with a capital letter) means "German" (the language of Germany) IN GERMAN. In English, you should always refer to it as German, only call it "Deutsch" when you're actually speaking German.
