Yes, absolutely possible.
There is a white spotting gene in the German Shepherd dog that generally causes white spots on the chest and paws. It's very common to find purebred German Shepherds that have a little bit of white on one or several paws, as well as on the chest. In most dogs, these spots get smaller as they grow up, but some retain a fair amount of white into their adult lives. It's not a disqualifier at shows, although it's not preferred.
I recently evaluated a purebred black German Shepherd female at a local shelter, which had three white paws. This was an unusual amount of white for a Shepherd, but there was no question that she was purebred.

No, I have seen purebred German Shepherd that are completely black with no white whatsoever.
