Appalachian Yorkies Facebook

This is the internet home of Appalachian Yorkies, a small dog breeding business located in Blowing Rock, NC. We are two sisters who are breeding our sweet pet Yorkshire Terriers: Sherlock Holmes and Miss Marple. My name is Arwen and my sister’s name is Lorien. Although these are our first Yorkies, our father and grandfather have many years of combined experience breeding and training German Shepherds. Lorien and I are excited about our business and about this breed. We look forward to providing some of the finest pets and show dogs in this area.

A little bit about us:  We are a Christian homeschooling family of 5.

Daddy teaches physics at 
Appalachian State University.  He is also an amazing fiddle player and plays with his family, The Cockman Family, and with another group here locally, Amantha Mill.  Daddy also teaches fiddle all around the world through his website BluegrassDaddy.com.

Mama organizes everyone and makes sure we all get to where we need to go.  She is the other half (the behind the scenes half) of 
BluegrassDaddy.com. Mama has homeschooled us from the beginning and has started all over with our little sister, Morgen.

My (Arwen) favorite things are animals, music and books!  I am usually found playing with puppies, playing an instrument or reading.  I am currently enrolled in community college, on my way to a nursing degree.

Lorien’s favorite things are music, books, writing and animals.  Lorien is our resident song writer and can almost always be found at the piano.🙂  She is currently enrolled in community college, on her way to a degree in psychology.


​Our younger sister is Morgen.  Morgen is 6 and she loves everyone and everything!  She gives all of our animals extra love and care.  She makes sure the puppies have A LOT of attention.
