After 1000 years, Spike has grown into a strong and intelligent dragon, as well as one of the most influential creatures around, despite staying neutral in most of the worlds conflicts. He went on to become a world renowned artist--don't assume he's not dangerous on the battlefield -- credited for teaching generosity to his fellow dragons. At first glance, he seems like just an older version of his past self, who's just as clueless as every one else. But, it's made clear that there's a lot more too him then that and he knows a lot more then he's admitting to.
