A dwarf planet in KSP is a body with a size similar to that of a moon, but orbits a star instead of a planet. There are currently two orbiting Kerbol. Prior to version 1.0 (which added asteroids to the orbit of Dres in the stock game, and allows the detection of asteroids near any planet with the official Asteroid Day mod), all dwarf planets in KSP would be defined as planets by the International Astronomical Union, but now that Dres (and potentially Eeloo) share their orbits with lots of other objects, their status as planets or dwarf planets (under the IAU definitions) is arguable.
