He did tell me beforehand that he wanted to see me even if it was for a short time because he was getting a puppy the next morning and it would be harder to hang out with him. He also told me that he wants to get to know me and "obviously" go out with me. At the gym he did ask if I wanted to see Disaster Artist for our date and I said yes. The next morning he texted me and added that he would take longer to text back because of the puppy. So since then, he has been taking HOURS to text back. He will make an effort for the conversation to continue though his replies are shorter and did apologize once because it took a long time to respond.
I know it's early and he did warn me but am I wasting my time? Is a puppy that time consuming? We haven't actually set our date in stone yet. I think I'm just really afraid that I'm being led on and I really don't know what to expect since it's been forever since I've last pursued a relationship.

The puppy is just an excuse to distance himself since sex is not on the menu.
He is leading you on and you are way too emotionally invested in him before you are 100% sure about him

It is possible that he is dealing with the puppy. If it's his first puppy and he is unsure of what to do or maybe a little too excited to have one, he will be spending most of his time with it. Once that excitement wears down and once that puppy is settled in, I'm sure he'll go back to the way he was with you. At least he let you know in advance of what might happen. It shows he is being considerate of your feelings and doesn't want you to think that you're being ignored. Give it some time.
