The Dwarves of Belegost were friends to the Sindar and later also the Noldor of Beleriand. They did not join the Dwarves of Nogrod in the Sack of Doriath, and actually attempted to dissuade their fellow Dwarves from it.
Belegost apparently survived the War of Wrath, although it was recorded as having been 'ruined' at that time. Many Dwarves from Belegost joined Durin's folk in Khazad-dûm 60 years after the war, but there were always Dwarves on the Eastern side of the mountains. Whether Belegost was at least partially rebuilt is unknown.
