no it's a dwarf planet

I would think that it is a dwarf planet, but its moon, Sharon, is nearly as big as it, so some MAY argue that Sharon is a dwarf planet and Pluto is the moon, but considering Pluto is slightly bigger than Sharon, I would think that Sharon would orbit Pluto rather than Pluto orbiting Sharon.
