Dwarf Planet is lighter,smaller than a planet ( Pluto ).They usually are larger than asteroids. For a planet to be dwarf, it needs to satisfy all the rules of being a planet.(needs to revolve around star, Min dimensions etc).

If considering planet and dwarf planet to recolce around same star, then planet has higher mass thus higher moment ofinertia (consider both as solid spheres)

Asteroids are small as compared to the planets and do not usually revolve around planets.
