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 them from from doing so.
At the end of the Fist Age, Belegost was ruined in the War of Wrath, and apparently abandoned. Many Dwarves from Belegost joined Durin's folk in Khazad-dûm 60 years after the war, however there were always Dwarves on the Eastern side of the Blue Mountains.
Note that Hebrew gadhol means "great".
