He talks to momlogic to explain why.
"I came up with the idea to give the First Family my puppy when I heard the Obama girls had to move to the White House," he tells momlogic. "I thought it would be hard for them to leave their friends. They don't have anyone to play with yet. If they had a puppy, they wouldn't be lonely."
We needed to know more about this special puppy (and this special kid!), so momlogic called Zach up personally to get more details. Here's what he had to say ...
momlogic: Does the puppy have a name?
Zach: Well, we call her Vegas right now.
ML: How do you feel about the Obamas possibly changing the name?
Zach: If they take her, she will be their dog and they can change the name to whatever they want. But Vegas would be a good name.
ML: Do you want visitation rights?
Zach: I would like to visit the puppy at the White House because I'll miss her very much and my brother Jake will miss her the most. Maybe we can see Vegas on TV when she's running around on the grass at the White House. That would so funny!
ML: Why do you think your puppy would be good for the Obamas?
Zach: Well, our puppy is always happy, she's friendly and she's smart. She's so smart that she is already house-trained!
ML: What are the chances that they will take your puppy?
Zach: I think it's a 50/50 chance they will want her.
ML: How do you think you'll react if the White House calls you?
Zach: I'll be really excited and I will thank them for taking our dog.
Do you think the Obamas should take Zach up on his offer?
