Here on Earth, dwarfs don't pull itself into a sphere and kick stuff out of its orbit...

Here on Earth a dwarf is around 4 feet 11 inches....tall.

So, how many feet is a dwarth planet? Or in miles?

The Earth
is 7,901 miles tall.

How many miles tall is a dwarf planet???

Mind you, I'm not asking how tall is Pluto..
I'm asking how tall is a drawf planet?

Here on Earth a dwarf is around 4 feet 11 inches....tall. (No names of dwarfs on earth needed.)

I'm asking how tall is a drawf planet?

It has to have a ...number.

Like 4 feet 11 inches....tall.
