Well, there is more that you can do.
You can educate yourself on the breed itself, what it is bred for, what it is used for, what it's needs are, what ailments are common to it.
You can educate yourself on the various lines. Looks to be some sables in that picture, but without papers, German showlines allow for sables, but they are generally black and brown dogs (mostly red pigment). American lines have some sables. Working lines have sables. Just because the puppy's ancestor was a police dog (this is often something fools say to get people to buy their puppies without papers), or if the ancestors have IOP or SchH titles does not mean the lines are working lines.
Lines are lines, and the various lines in general can give you an idea of the temperament and better tune you into what kind of owner you will need to be for your dog. For example, no qualms putting a German show line with an aging, single owner. But for a working line puppy, that owner would have to convince me that they know what they are doing and what they are getting themselves into.
I am not saying that working line puppies are less than show line. They are different. They can be for different sorts of people. Too many people are wow'd by what police dogs can do and want the "real thing." But they have no desire to get off the couch and give their "real thing" the outlet that a strong working line dog deserves. Show line dogs tend to be more forgiving in that area.
And each litter has strong personalities, middle of the road personalities, and weaker personalities. You might think getting the dog with the weaker personality would be fine for someone who doesn't want to hike up and down mountains several times a week. And you would be wrong again. A dog with a weaker personality can be the best dog in the world for the right person, but they need to be trained, socialized, managed, and led with understanding and deliberation to bring out the best confidence that they can produce and to be safe with strangers. Without that, these are the ones that are most likely to bite your non-offensive visitor.
Every puppy born, papers or no papers, need homes. But why do you need to go this route, and are you at the right place to go this route. Wouldn't it be better to pick a puppy from lines, where you at least have an idea what you are getting? If it is your first German Shepherd, I would pass on this litter and go with a better known quantity.
The thing about no papers is in my next post on this thread.
