Well, personally I think the best way to feed any dog is RAW diet. But some people aren’t up to the idea, so there are many great quality dog foods out there, for example ::
Orijen, Go!Natural, Blue Wilderness, Innova, etc.

Raw is great if you want to go that route. If not, a high quality kibble with no grains is great. Minpins are prone to skin conditions and dry coats.
I feed my kids Blue.

Try to choose Holistic Diets such as Wellness, Blue Buffalo, Solid Gold, etc. Just read the label.
Some people love RAW diets. I think they can be great when done properly. They are alot of work…and you need to make sure that you put the time into it or you could be depriving your pet of the adequate nutrition he needs. I do think its good…if you have the time and experience to do so. I have seen a lot damage done by mixing raw diets with people that dont know what they are doing!
For Example, my miniature pinscher eats Solid Gold (Buy on Amazon):
Bison | Ocean Fish Meal | Brown Rice | Millet | Oatmeal | Cracked Pearled Barley | Rice Bran | Canola Oil | Tomato Pomace | Flaxseed | Natural Flavor | Salmon Oil | Choline Chloride | Dried Chicory Root | Parsley | Pumpkin Meal | Almond Oil | Sesame Oil | Yucca Schidigera Extract | Thyme | Blueberries | Carrots | Broccoli | Vitamin E Supplement | Iron Proteinate | Zinc Proteinate | Copper Proteinate | Ferrous Sulfate | Copper Sulfate | Potassium Iodide | Thiamine Mononitrate | Manganese Proteinate | Manganous Oxide | Ascorbic Acid | Vitamin A Supplement | Biotin | Calcium Panthothenate | Manganese Sulfate | Sodium Selenite | Pyridoxine Hydrochloride | Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin) | Riboflavin | Vitamin D3 Supplement | Folic Acid
And these are the ingredients in Science Diet, not so good;
Ground Whole Grain Corn, Chicken By-Product Meal, Animal Fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid), Dried Beet Pulp, Soybean Oil, Dried Egg Product, Flaxseed, Potassium Chloride, Iodized Salt, Choline Chloride, vitamins (L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate (source of vitamin C), Vitamin E Supplement, Niacin, Thiamine Mononitrate, Vitamin A Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin, Folic Acid, Vitamin D3 Supplement), Vitamin E Supplement, minerals (Ferrous Sulfate, Zinc Oxide, Copper Sulfate, Manganous Oxide, Calcium Iodate, Sodium Selenite), preserved with Mixed Tocopherols and Citric Acid, Beta-Carotene, Rosemary Extract.
Just make sure you read labels, and remember you can always give your vet a call to check if your pet has any specific needs of his own!
