John Wayne had a dog named Duke. This was from where he derived his own nickname. Duke was an Airedale terrier. The Airedale terrier is a breed of dog that originates from Airedale in Yorkshire, England. It is the largest of the breeds of terriers. It weighs about 23 to 32 kilograms (50 to 70 pounds). An Airedale terrier is known as the 'king of terriers'. It is also known as 'Waterside Terrier' because it was originally bred to hunt otters.

Apart from John Wayne, other famous personalities who owned Airedale terriers included three former presidents of the United States of America, namely Theodore Roosevelt (October 27, 1858 to January 6, 1919), who served as the 26th president of the United States for two consecutive terms (1901-1909), Warren G. Harding (November 2, 1865 to August 2, 1923), the 29th president of the United States who came into power in 1921 and died while in office two years later, and his successor Calvin Coolidge (July 4, 1872 to January 5, 1933), the 30th president of the United States between 1923 and 1929.
